"Glaucous Gull"
Glaucous Gull:    Ehrlich, Dobkin, and Wheye, in their 1988 publication "The Birder's Handbook", write "The origins of the word gull are thought by some to be the same as those of 'gullet', 'gulp', and 'gullible' (all based on the Latin gula, throat). It might, therefore, refer to the birds' scavenging habits. On the other hand, the name might be onomatopoetic."
