Help with place names...

Hi all,

Does anyone know what the Gauls called (or might have called) the Alps, Pyrenees,
and the Rhine? Also, does anyone know how accurate the recorded names of
Gaulish settlements are (prior to Roman invasion)? The names of places and
tribes seem to be heavily Latinized, and it's difficult to tell to what extent
they might actually reflect the names the Gauls would have used themselves.
