French[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Old French garenne, guarenne, from Medieval Latin warenna, itself of Germanic origin; from Old High German ivaron (to forbid), through Proto-Germanic *warjaną (ward off, defend against) or Proto-Germanic *warnōną (to heed, be careful) from Proto-Indo-European *wer- (to become aware; take heed).

Likely not related to Gaulish varenna (enclosed area). Also compare English warren.
