Commentary

Related with OIr. Follomain. Vallauno- (var. Vellauno- < *velaunos "who reignes", see Motta 2000: 206, Markey & Mees 2003: 143, Tibiletti Bruno 1978: 152, DLG: 306, 311, Delamarre 2007: 188, 235, GPN: 272, Prósper 2002: 207, Villar & Prósper 2005: 317, 327, 328, Holder 1896-1907: III 94, KGP: 288-289, Lejeune 1971: 65 fn. 229, CIL: II 1590 -> Velaunis employed as cognomen; Eska 1998c: 70).

Nom. sg. ending -al: abbreviation of -ali/-ala or of Etruscan and Raetic gen. ending? (cf. Motta 2000: 206, Lejeune 1971: 51-52, Tibiletti Bruno 1973-5: 50, Tibiletti Bruno 1978: 152, De Hoz 1990: 324, Eska & Wallace 2001: ?). Prosdocimi (1991: 163-167) supposes Lep. names on ali- (cf. Lat. -āli-), where the nom. sg. ending (m or f) *-al(i)s > -al, cf. sunalei, tunal (Motta 2000: 206, Markey & Mees 2003: 143, Prosdocimi 1992: 466-470).
