Paris: Named after the Parisii tribe. Vichy (1940–1944): There are 4 suggested etymologies for Vichy: Celtic “Virtue water” Wich or Gwich'in (virtue) and y (water). Latin Vicus calidus with subsequent deformation of Vicus. Gallo-Roman Vipiacus (Vipius field), with phonetic change to Vichiacus in the Middle Ages. Vici, Latin plural for a group of villages: the c is pronounced ch and the final -i becomes -y by orthographic normalization. This is the simplest and most plausible explanation, advanced by Louis Nadeau in 1869.
Suva: Etymology unknown. Levuka (1871–1877): Probably meaning “Little Island” in Fijian.
