    France name come from the name of the tribe who conquered it, the Franks.
    The etimology of the word “Frank” is still unclear.

    Portugal comes from Portus Cale, which basically means… Port of Cale, with Cale being a town that was where Oporto is today. As for where the name Cale comes from, that’s a bit of a mystery. It means “warm” in latin and “beautiful” in greek so…
