one meaning is "high revolving window", but I cannot say where the orgin is other than God is The One who gave all mankind our language and separated us by them because we all got too big for our britches. It is a curious name to me though, makes me think of the word "galute" (probably arcaic by now in our technological times) has to do with a sore or irritation that is rubbed on a horse's back or some other places where leather gear (like saddles, cinches or harnesses) will rub an animal and cause them to be very cranky and unwielding. Remember those ole corny westerns when someone like Gabby Hayes would utter out "Confurnaled galutes"? He was talking about bad guys, but the application is the same it referes to something or someone which/who is irritating of vexing and a cause of trouble.
Its alittle funny that in Hebrew Andy said it means exile.
