Meaning & History

Derived from the ancient Roman name Gallus, meaning "rooster" in Latin. Hoff meaning house combines the growing or tending to poultry on a farm house, hence the name Galishoff which has been modified over the millennia. Gal was an Irish saint who fled to Switzerland. Gal was used in many names after Saint Gal fled in 15th century.
