Gypsy
This is the most commonly understood label, although it is disliked by many of those whom it describes, partly because of its derogatory connotations and partly because it is a misnomer."Gypsy" is an abbreviation of Egyptian ('gyptian) because of the mistaken belief that these people came from Egypt or a part of Europe once known as Little Egypt.
