Source : The Free Dictionary

Etymology : c.1500, from Middle French galerie “a long portico” (14c.), from Medieval Latin galeria, of uncertain origin, perhaps an alteration of galilea “church porch,” which is probably from Latin Galilaea “Galilee,” the northernmost region of Palestine; church porches sometimes were so called from being at the far end of the church.
