Was the choice of "galb" influenced by German "gelp"?

It comes from the latin "galbinus".

And Latin galbinus gave French jaune.

To be honest, that's not the most surprising Latin -> French change I've seen.

It's gelb* in German though

I thought it was related to Italian "giallo", hence "yellow" too?
