In German goose is "gans"

I just checked to see, and it appears that almost all Indo-European languages have a word for goose that likely relates back to a single root, (h)ans-, so the word is similar in a lot of languages.

Although the pronounce is different, while it sounds /xans/ the Portuguese sounds /gansu/
