Etruscan name of Dionysos was Fufluns, that seems to be from Italic origin, *Poplo:nos. Etruscan theonyms with endings in -s seem to be Italic: Nethuns, Sethlans, Velchans, Turms, etc. Poplo:nos, "People-God" resembles *LeudHyonos (cf. Umbrian Vofionu) and Gaulish Teutates.

But, dominant view is that Latin populus is of Etruscan origin. (AHD,
4th edition.)
