Galapagos is a spanish word that means 'saddle.'",

the islands off the coast of/owned by ecuador were named that because:

one- the galpagos tortoises discovered inhabiting those islands have saddle-shaped shells, and,
two- the islands themselves straddle the equator, like a 'saddle' on the equator.

hope this helps. good luck.
