The gull-billed tern (Gelochelidon nilotica), formerly Sterna nilotica, is a seabird of the tern family, Sternidae. It is now considered to be in its own genus. The genus name is from Ancient Greek gelao, "to laugh", and khelidon, "swallow". The specific niloticus is from Latin and means of the Nile.
