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.
