EtymologyEdit

From Middle English Lombard, Lumbard, from the merger of Old English Longbeard (Lombard); and Old French Lombard, Lombart (a Lombard), from Late Latin Longobardus, Langobardus (a Lombard), derived from the Proto-Germanic elements *langaz + *bardaz; equivalent to long +‎ beard. Some sources derive the second element instead from Proto-Germanic *bardǭ, *barduz (axe), related to German Barte (axe).
