In Brazil they call Polka dots… “bolinhas” or “bolotas”.

Which one do you prefer?

They’re not called POLKA DOTS everywhere.

In Germany, polka dots are Thalertupfen, after the silver coin called a Thaler, used as currency throughout Europe until the 1800s.

In Spanish, polka dots dress is “vestido de lunares”.

Dots are called lunares, or “little moons”.

In French, clothes are à pois, or marked with peas.
