From Old Galician-Portuguese maçãa, from Vulgar Latin māla Mattiāna (literally “apples of Mattium”), though some theorize that Mattiāna was an Iberian pronunciation of the Gallo-Roman word matianium, a golden apple named after Gaius Matius, a horticulturist and friend of Caesar.
Cognate with Galician mazá, Aragonese and Asturian mazana, Mirandese maçana and Spanish manzana (Old Spanish maçana).
maçã f (plural maçãs)
