Spanish[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Old Spanish ganar, from Medieval Latin ganō, ganāre, from Gothic *𐌲𐌰𐌽𐌰𐌽 (*ganan, to covet), perhaps from Proto-Germanic *ganēną, *ginōną (to gape). Related to English yawn.

Compare Asturian ganar, Old Portuguese gãar, also Portuguese ganhar, Catalan guanyar, French gagner, Italian guadagnare, all meaning "gain, earn, win", from a separate root *wadanio, wadaniare, which may have influenced this word's etymon.
