    I think their people(celts, gauls) are very closely related. Brittany and its culture is fascinating. Worth a visit if you're ever in France.

    Celts settled in Eastern Europe / Balkan Peninsula also, their migration routes are interesting.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celtic_settlement_of_Eastern_Europe

    On the other hand, French region Bretagne has name similarity with Brittany

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brittany_(administrative_region)

    Land of Britons:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brittany

    Britons are people of this area:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celtic_Britons

    Normandy is connected with Normans

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Normandy

    In further text, it's visible that Gauls and Belgae are Celts.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belgae

    Usually people think wrongly, that Belgium is only French-Dutch state. But, Belgae tribe also existed.

    Gallia Belgica

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gallia_Belgica

    Wales is obviously connected with the word Wallonia

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wallonia

    In Spanish language, the state Wales is Gales. Again, Gaule spectre.

    Pre-Roman period in Europe was very interesting, vibrant, with much more tribes, who acted differently. Today's states embraced a lot of different pre-Roman tribes and with all of them created one nation.

    Roman amphitheatres:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Roman_amphitheatres

    Romans created fascinating things from Algeria - Scotland - Syria area. Imagine only how many people switched places.
