Etymology of the name DALMAT.
Meaning of the baby name DALMAT.

  

DALMAT.  Albanian name, that may simply denote someone "from Dalmatia."  See below for possible translations of Dalmatia

    Dalmatia, a province of Austria, on the Gulf of Venice.  Calmet translates Dalmatia "deceitful lamps," from Greek δαλος a lamp, ματαια vain, but does not give any reason.  Strabo (lib. vii. 6), states that the Dalmatians were in the habit of making a division of their fields every eighth year; hence, says Dr. Webster, perhaps the name; from deal and madh.  He probably refers to the Gaelic dealaich, to separate, part, and madh (now magh) a plain.  Others derive the name from the Dalmatine, a small district between Sebenico and Scordona. (P. Cyc.)  According to Strabo and Appian, Dalmatia was named after the Dalmates, who inhabited the city of Delminium or Delmium.  It is often named Delmatia upon ancient medals and marbles, and by Latin writers.  Greek authors, with the exception of Polybius, call it Dalmatia. (Local Etymology, Charnock, 1859)
