Jules didn't have a very big linguistic fantasy, so if he said that they
called themselves Celtae, he must have had some evidence. Maybe they didn't
call themselves this way, but he can't have come up with the word all by
himself: at least someone must have been using it in respect to the people
living in that part of Gaul.

Nah, much too Stoic. <kidding>
Seriously, should we believe Jules? After all, this is the guy who
told us all the nonsense about the deities.
