Gasmoulos (Greek: Γασμουλος) is the name given by Byzantines to person(s) born from a mixed marriage (Greek x Frank or Latin).

Allegedly, the word derives from the French word "Gas" (Garcon = Boy = Αγορι) and the Latin word Mulus (Mulus = Mule = Μουλαρι).

One of the better known "Gasmoulo" is the Byzantine Cavalry Officer George Sgouromallaios (Sgouromalis) (father from the family Sgouros, mother from the Latin family de Mailly).
