Portuguese[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Vulgar Latin *wadaniō, *wadaniāre.

According to some sources the word possibly entered Portuguese through the intermediate of Old French gaigner[1], but this is unlikely and it probably resulted from a crossing of Old Portuguese gãar (from a separate Germanic (Gothic) root; compare Spanish ganar) with influence from *wadaniare / *waiþanjan)[2]. See also Portuguese gadanha.
