Etymology of the name GALLUS.
Meaning of the baby name GALLUS.

  

GALLUS.  Latin name meaning "Gaul," also "rooster."

... In Interprétation anthropologique du mot Latin Gallus, by Gaulois, pp. 432-440, the author produces evidence to show that Gallus ("Gaul") is identical with gallus ("rooster"), an essentially Latin word.  Celts, Galates, and Gauls are words not derived from one root, and therefore not akin to each other.  The fact that the Gauls were looked upon as "red,"--in French a ruddy-complexioned man is still described as rouge comme un coq--made the passage from the fowl to the human being easy. (American Anthropologist, A.A.A., v.100, 1901)
