Italian[edit]

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ˈɡwa.do/, [ˈɡwäːd̪o]
  • Rhymes: -ado
  • Hyphenation: guà‧do

Etymology 1[edit]

Possibly ultimately from Proto-Germanic *wadą ‎(ford), from Proto-Indo-European *wadʰom, perhaps through a Late Vulgar Latin *uadam. Compare French gué ‎(ford). Other sources list it as deriving from Latin vadum,[1][2][3] itself from the same Proto Indo-European root as the Germanic, and thus cognate to it. However, it was likely influenced in pronunciation by the corresponding Germanic term (the change of Classical Latin V, originally pronounced /w/, to /v/ had probably already occurred in the Vulgar Latin dialects by the Proto-Romance era in the early Middle Ages; thus the normal result in Italian would have been *vado). Compare Spanish vado, Portuguese vau, Romanian vad, Sicilian vadu, which were not affected by the Germanic influence.
