etruscan
(GAÎA) / CAE > GAUDĔO > GĀIUS

This name derives from the Latin Praenomen (personal name) “Gāius”, from the Latin “gaudĕo“, meaning “rejoice, be glad, pleased, enjoy, delight, pleasure in something”, which in turn probably derives from Etruscan “Cae or Cai”, meaning unknown. Gaius was commonly designated for Emperor Gaius Caesar. The name, however, could be derived from the Ancient Greek Gaîa (Γαῖα). Pope Caius († 296), also called Gaius, was the Bishop of Rome from 17 December 283 to his death in 296.
