CatalanEdit

EtymologyEdit

Probably from Late Latin or Vulgar Latin regia, from Latin porta regia ("royal gate"), with later influence from Arabic رِيشَة(rîša, batten)[1]. Alternative etymologies suggest Vulgar Latin *regla, from regula, although Catalan rella is the proper descendant of this word.
