Etymology 1[edit]

Borrowed from Malay gangsa, variant of angsa (goose), from Sanskrit हंस (haṃsa), from Proto-Indo-Iranian *ȷ́ʰansás (goose), from Proto-Indo-European *ǵʰh₂éns (goose). Compare Kapampangan galsa, Bikol Central gangsa, Waray-Waray gangsa, Malay angsa, Javanese ꦒꦁꦱ (gangsa), Burmese ဟင်္သာ (hangsa), and Hindi हंस (hans). Some sources think it is from Spanish gansa (female goose), but this is rejected by Potet (2016) and Zorc (1982).
