Origin of gavialfrom Fr, altered from Hindi gha?iy?l
Origin of gavialFrench from Hindi gha&rlowdot;iyāl from Sanskrit gha&nlowdot;&tlowdot;ikah probably from gha&nlowdot;&tlowdot;ā bell (from the bulbous end of its snout)
Technically, extending the definition to family Gavialidae results in including just one other extant species: the false gavial (Tomistoma schlegelii). However, the subfamily Tomistominae is often (perhaps usually) excluded from Gavialidae.
From Hindi घड़ियाल (ghaṛiyāl).
