Means "white house", from Portuguese casa meaning "house" and branca meaning "white". The present-day spelling follows the Spanish form (casa "house"; blanca "white"), however, because of the Portuguese Kingdom joining the Spanish Kingdom. In Berber, the city is named (and was originally named) Anfa, and in Arabic, the city's name is الدار البيضاء (ad-Dār al-Bayḍā'). Casablanca is the largest city in Morocco and the largest city in all of the Maghreb region of North Africa.
