EtymologyEdit

From Old Khmer caṅa (to desire; to want; to wish). Cognate with Modern Khmer ចង់ (cɑng). Extended as Old Khmer pañcaṅa, from which Thai บรรจง was derived, corresponding to Modern Khmer បញ្ចង់ (bɑñcɑng); and as Khmer ចំណង (cɑmnɑɑng), from which Thai จำนง (jam-nong) was derived. Compare Lao ຈົງ (chong), ຈົ່ງ (chong); Northern Thai ᨧᩩ᩵ᨦ; ᦈᦳᧂᧈ (ṫsung1).
