Etymology[edit]

From Old French panne "a fur lining; a warp resulting from such a lining, hence a breakdown" from Medieval Latin panna, alteration of Latin penna "quill" from pinna "feather, wing". The transition of sense from "feather/wing" to "fur" is due to an associative analogy to the corresponding Frankish word *feder, which could mean both "feather" and "fur"; compare Middle High German vëder, federe "feather"/"fur"
