Sorry David, I don't understand well the question. Could you explain it more?
The original title posted of the TOTM was "xotis romanes", the name that gave to the tune the catalonian musicians, Perepau Jiménez, etc. that recorded them and appear in youtube. As another musicians, the Carr Family, etc. probably learned the tune from that source, they named the tune also "xotis romanes", as I told xotis romanes means romanian scottische.
Searching more information about the tune finally I found (other kind people in a spanish facebook group about celtic music gave me the information), that the original source was the Nigun Roimani, from the musician Akiva Ben Horin.
And as I told perhaps the catalonian musicians that learned it didn't made a good translation of the yiddish, hebrew, name.
As I told in spanish romaní means also romany, gipsy, but romanes in catalonian language means romanian, rumano in spanish.
Catalunya, is a spanish region (or a region from the spanish State as some people says), one of the historic nationalities recognized in the spanish constitution (the other two are Galicia and the Basque Country), and they have their own language, culture, etc. and a strong feelings, emotions, of nation, it is also a economically strong region. Barcelona is the capital of Catalunya.
In Iberian peninsula the languages spreaded at the same time that christian realms occupied the land that previously the muslims had conquered, from north to south. As result of this there is the galician-portuguese branch in the west part (with Galicia as part of Spain and Portugual as independient nation), castillian (more known as "spanish") in the center, and the catalonian branch (catalán, valenciano, mallorquí, etc.) at the east, with I am not expert but with similarities with occitan language, lengua de Oc, and less with french language. The vasque language remained isolated at the north, and there are other ones more, but it is too long for explaining. The vasque language hasn't latin roots but the other ones they are all rooted in the latin language.
