吉普赛人是埃及人的简称,但他们并不是埃及人

影视作品里常出现的吉普赛人?Gypsy?其实是对埃及人?Egyptians?的简称,但吉普赛人和埃及并没有关系,他们实际上是从印度北部来的。

另外,“吉普赛”这个称呼其实是个蔑称,现在西方国家为了表示尊重一般都不会这么叫了,而是叫他们“罗姆人”?Romani people

Gypsy?is a short name for “Egyptian”.?Gypsies were originally thought to have come from Egypt and some of the earliest references to them in English, dating back to the 16th century, call them "Egyptians".?They were accompanied by a legend that they had been expelled from Egypt for trying to hide Jesus.?A genetic analysis of 13 Gypsy groups around Europe, published in?Current Biology?journal, has revealed that the arrival on the continent of their forebears from northern India happened far earlier than was thought, about 1,500 years ago.
埃及人又被简称为“Gypsy”(吉普赛人)。吉普赛人最早被认为是从埃及来的,幸运快三中一些早至十六世纪的纪录把他们称为“埃及人”。与他们一同到来的还有一个传说,说他们是因为企图藏起耶稣才被从埃及放逐的。但《当代生物幸运快三》期刊上一篇涉及13个吉普赛族群的遗传幸运快三分析则显示他们的祖先是在约1500年前从印度北部来到欧洲的,这比大家想的要早得多。
