Etymology Edit

The Japanese name, ゲイラキャット (Gaira Kyatto?, lit. Gayla Cat) is a play-on-words of "gayla kite" (ゲイラカイト, geira kaito?), which were innovative in 1970 for their triangle bat-like designs. The English name Gaelicat is phonetically similar to the Japanese name and is a portmanteau of "Gaelic" and "cat", and alludes to the Celtic fairy cat cait sith.

Cat sìth (meaning "faerie cat", pronounced "Kat Shee") is a fairy creature from Celtic mythology, said to resemble a large black cat with a white spot on its breast. Legend has it that the spectral cat haunts the Scottish Highlands.

The legends surrounding this creature are more common in Scottish folklore, but a few occur in Irish. Some common folklore suggested that the Cat Sìth was not a fairy, but a witch that could transform into a cat nine times.
