  • Ambassador comes from a Celtic root (recorded as ambaxtos), independently borrowed into Latin (ambactus) and Germanic (e.g. Gothic andbahts).
  • Bigot and Bigotry have unknown etymologies.
  • Cheval de Frise is largely from Roman (caballus).
  • Cologne is from Latin (Colonia).
  • Embassy, see Ambassador. Wiktionary lists a route from Celtic to Gothic to Latin, so it's possible.
