Remarks 'goby' from Latin 'gobius', i.e., a fish of small value, gudgeon, from Greek 'kõbios' (Ref. 11978); 'black', from Old English 'blæc', of obscure origins but probably related to Latin 'flagrare' and Greek 'phlégein', i.e., burn, from Indo-European 'phleg-, bhleg-' (p. 65 in Ref. 11979). Name also cited in Ref. 5755.
