Etymology[edit]

From Old Portuguese comarcar (to share limits),[1] from co- (with) +‎ marcar (to delimit), from Medieval Latin marco (boundary stone), frequent in local documents since the 9th century together with its derivatives marcar and demarcar (to delimit). Given its early local documentation it is not a borrowing from Italian, but from Gothic or Suevic.[2] Ultimately from Proto-Germanic *markō (boundary, region), from Proto-Indo-European *merǵ- (boundary, border).
