Like the Roma in general, many different ethnonyms are given to subgroups of Roma.

Most of them belong to the ethnic subgroup Calés (Kale), of the Iberian peninsula.The feminine of Rom in the Romani language is Romni.However, in most cases, in other languages Rom is now used for people of both genders.This designation owes its existence to the belief, common in the Middle Ages, that the Romani, or some related group (such as the Middle Eastern Dom people), were itinerant Egyptians.
