greek
GáLA > GALáTEIA

This name derives from the Ancient Greek “gála (γάλα) Galáteia (Γαλάτεια)”, meaning “she who is milk-white, milk, white, milky, white as milk”. Galatea is a name popularly applied to the statue carved of ivory by Pygmalion of Cyprus, which then came to life, in Greek mythology; in modern English the name usually alludes to that story.
