Whale (English). Balein (Franc,ais). Wal (Deutsch).

You seem to want "Latin-to-English" rather than "Latvian-to-Latin" (as your category seems to indicate).

BALAENA in Latin means "whale" in English. Another Latin word for this animal or for any large non-fish sea creature, borrowed from ancient Greek, is CETUS.

The French equivalent is LA BALEIN (which resembles the Latin word, French being one of several modern developments of ancient Latin).

The German equivalent is DER WAL (which resembles the English word, because German is a "cousin" language to English).

The Russian equivalent is KIT, distantly related to the ancient Greek word.
