Now it's impossible to explain the ethimology.
Maybe it was because the Italians brought to us by one of our queens had extensive body hair.
Maybe it was some proto-slavic-proto-germanic word transformation from wahlen -> wohlen -> wolowie -> wolosi -> włosi
Generally similar etymology to Wallachians

>>53349162
I understand that, I mean for us the chair is a "she" but the computer is a "he", but I don't see why my language is a Feminine gender language
>>
>>53355470
You don't get it. The thread is about the gender of countries, not languages.
"Brazilia" is female because it ends with -a.

>>53355470
Are you dumb? Just stop posting.
