Gige (Croatian: Gigovec) is a village in Somogy county, Hungary.

Etymology[edit]

The older name of the village was Gége (Hungarian: larynx). But according to the scientific explanation its first owner was called Gége. That could be a shorter form of Gergely or a nickname referring to his larynx.[2]

History[edit]

According to László Szita the settlement was completely Hungarian in the 18th century.[3]
