Word Origin and History for paris
capital of France, from Gallo-Latin Lutetia Parisorum (in Late Latin also Parisii), name of a fortified town of the Gaulish tribe of the Parisii, who had a capital there; literally "Parisian swamps" (cf. Old Irish loth "dirt," Welsh lludedic "muddy, slimy").
The tribal name is of unknown origin, but traditionally derived from a Celtic par "boat" (cf. Greek baris; see barge), hence the ship on the city's coat of arms.
