Not mentioned. Possibly "alle manne", ie. "all men" i.e. a confederation of tribes. In any case, latin "alemanni" -> "allemand" (German) in modern French. Alemanni Dictionary.com name of a Suebic tribe or confederation that settled in Alsace and part of Switzerland (and source of the Fr. Allemand "German"), from P.Gmc. *Alamanniz, probably meaning "all-man" and denoting a wide alliance of tribes, but perhaps meaning "foreign men" (cf. Allobroges, name of a Celtic tribe in what is now Savoy, in L. lit. "the aliens," in reference to their having driven out the original inhabitants), in which case the al- is cognate with the first element in L. alius "the other" and Eng. else.

Translation of Name
small item: this article says "alemania" for germany is in modern castilian spanish. and the 'Alamanni' article says its in spanish, without making distinction of dialect. i dont speak castilian spanish, but im very familiar with it. i speak mexican spanish, and that's exactly how i say germany, and speakers from other latin american countries say it the same. maybe this article needs to be revised by simply omitting "castilian".18.104.22.168 04:56, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
- Castilian is used sometimes to disinguish Spanish from the other languages of Spain: Catalan, Galician, Asturian, etc. However, I see your point and the meaning will be clearest to Anglophones without the "Castilian." Srnec 05:11, 5 June 2007 (UTC)
