French[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Origin uncertain. Compare Middle French bagarot (noise, tumult, contention, strife). Perhaps from or related to Old High German bāgari (arguer, fighter), from bāgan, bāgēn (to quarrel, dispute), from Proto-Germanic *bēganą, *bēgijaną (to fight, contend), from Proto-Indo-European *bhēǵh-, *bhēgh- (to press, compel). If so, then cognate with German bägern (to vex, torment), Old Norse bágr (resistance, struggle, fight).

Alternate etymology cites derivation from Provençal bagarro, possibly from the same origin as above, or from Basque batzarre.
