From Proto-Germanic *gardaz, from Proto-Indo-European *gʰórdʰos or *ǵʰortós < *ǵʰer- (to enclose). Cognate with Old Frisian garda, Old English ġeard (English yard), Old Dutch *gart (Dutch gaard), Old High German gart (obsolete German Gart), Old Norse garðr (Icelandic garður, Swedish and Danish gård), Gothic 𐌲𐌰𐍂𐌳𐍃 (gards).

Descendants[edit]

  • Middle Low German: gard

Romanian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *ǵʰortós, possibly a substratum word from a Dacian *garda, akin to Albanian gardh (or borrowed from it), or more likely from Proto-Slavic *gordъ, perhaps predating the metathesis occurring in Slavic languages (however this is uncertain as other related terms such as grădină, ogradă, îngrădi have undergone it when borrowed from Slavic). Other suggested possibilities include a link to Proto-Germanic *gardaz. [1] Other Indo-European cognates include English garden, yard, gird, Sanskrit गृह (gṛha, house, home), Old Church Slavonic градъ (gradŭ), Gothic 𐌲𐌰𐍂𐌳𐍃 (gards), German Garten, Danish gård and Norwegian gard, garde, gjerde.
