Etymology[edit]

Origin uncertain. Possibly for Proto-Italic *gnōrjā, through *gnoris (knowledge) (compare Ancient Greek γνώριμος (gnṓrimos, well-known, familiar)), from Proto-Indo-European *ǵneh₃- (to know, recognize). For the dissimilation compare grōma from Ancient Greek γνῶμα (gnôma). Cognate with gnāvus, gnārus, ignōrō (with no dissimilation), nārrō, and also nōscō.
