The Gaels (Irish: Na Gaeil; Scottish Gaelic: Na Gàidheil; Manx: Ny Gaeil), also known as Goidels, are a Celtic people, a subgroup of the Indo-Europeans, the core of whom claim patrilineal descent from the Milesians. The homeland of the Gaels is Ireland in northern Europe, where much of their culture and language developed. During the Early Middle Ages, the Gaelic people spread out into other areas, such as Great Britain (particularly the area known today as the Scottish Highlands) and the Isle of Man. The Gaels took with them their language, which developed into three branches: Irish, Scottish Gaelic and Manx.
The word Gael is applied in two main ways today. As a synonym for people of indigenous Irish origin with Gaelic-derived surnames, many having undergone linguistic Anglicisation since the early modern period. The more exclusive usage is to describe the small communities which continue to use the Gaelic languages in everyday life such as the Gaeltacht and Gàidhealtachd. To further complicate the matter, during the High Middle Ages, a minority of clans with Germanic ancestry, such as some of the Normans in Ireland (the Old English) and the Vikings in the Scottish Highlands (Foreign Gaels such as Clan Donald) became Gaelicised
