If there is indeed anyone still reading these posts, I would ask that they please consider "Galacia", the strange place just outside of Poland and Russia, etc.?

If anyone knows, just what seperates this area from Galatia, and Gaul, other than geography, and consensual history reports?

Does anyone think it strange that the area called "Halych" was located either within the area called "Galicia"

"The city's name, though spelled identically "Галич" in modern East Slavic languages, is pronounced Halych in Ukrainian and Galich in Russian. The Russian transliteration should not be confused with Galich, Russia. In Polish the name is rendered "Halicz"; in the Yiddish language, "העליטש" ("Helitsh" or "Heylitsh"); in Latin, "Galic"; in Hungarian, "Halics."

The origin of the Slavic toponym "Halych" is after the Khwalis or Kaliz who occupied the area from the time of the Magyars. They were also called Khalisioi in Greek, and Khvalis (Хвалис) in Russian. Historians formerly believed it was Celtic, related to many similar place names found across Europe such as "Galaţi" (Romania), "Gaul" (France) and "Galicia" (Spain).[citation needed] Another version postulates "hals", "salt", at the root of "Halych", as the salt trade was a substantial economic factor in the medieval history of Halych.[citation needed] Max Vasmer and modern Slavists generally agree that "Halych" is an adjective derived from the East Slavic word for "jackdaw," "halka." This bird featured in the town's coat of arms (but not in the Árpád coat of arms, when Corvinus is a raven) when it was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire."

And ancient Galatia; and; Where we are told; "(1) Geographical

To designate a country in the north part of the central plateau of Asia Minor, touching Paphlagonia and Bithynia North, Phrygia West and South, Cappadocia and Pontus Southeast and East, about the headwaters of the Sangarios and the middle course of the Halys;

(2) Political

To designate a large province of the Roman empire, including not merely the country Galatia, but also Paphlagonia and parts of Pontus, Phrygia, Pisidia, Lycaonia and Isauria. The name occurs in 1 Corinthians 16:1 Galatians 1:2 1 Peter 1:1, and perhaps 2 Timothy 4:10. Some writers assume that Galatia is also mentioned in Acts 16:6; Acts 18:23; but the Greek there has the phrase "Galatic region" or "territory," though the English Versions of the Bible has "Galatia"; and it must not be assumed without proof that "Galatic region" is synonymous with "Galatia." If e.g. a modern narrative mentioned that a traveler crossed British territory, we know that this means something quite different from crossing Britain. "Galatic region" has a different connotation from "Galatia"; and, even if we should find that geographically it was equivalent, the writer had some reason for using that special form."

So we also can note that Galatia in Asia Minor it seems, was located upon or in the vicinity of the "Halys" river! Here you can see the course of the Halys;

Is it merely a co-incidence that "Galicia" is similar to "Galatia", and "Halys" is similar to "Halych?"

Can anything be found in this Galicia; That might be related to the others? See also;

I think they are coincidences. There are many sources of such names, eg. Galati city in Romania came from a Cumanic word (as other toponym in the area show, Galatui with specific -ui ending), other villages named Galati can come from Hungarian etc.
