    Gall is apparently from Gallus, a Roman family name which came originally from the Latin 'gallus' (cock, rooster), but became associated with 'Gallus' (Gaul - now modern France). Saint Gall was a 6th/7th century Irish saint. His name became Havel in Czech and Gawel; in Polish, acquiring an extra syllable so that it would be similar to Paulus (which became Pavel in Czech and Pawel; in Polish).
