Portuguese[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Old Portuguese abrigo (a place where one is sheltered from the elements or harm), from abrigar, from Late Latin abrigare (to cover, shelter), from a- + brigare, from Frankish *berīhan (to cover, protect), from Proto-Germanic *bi- (be-) + *wrīhaną (to cover, clothe), from Proto-Indo-European *werḱ-, *werǵ- (to twist, weave, tie together). Cognate with Old High German birīhan (to cover), Old English bewrēon (to cover, enwrap, protect).

Late Latin abrigare may have also crossed with Old Frankish *bergan (to take care of, protect, hide), from Proto-Germanic *berganą (to care for), from Proto-Indo-European *bʰergʰ- (to take care), due to similarity in form and meaning[1]. If so, this would relate the word also to Old High German bergan (to shelter) (German bergen) and Old English beorgan (to save, preserve). More at borrow.
