Spanish influence formed the French grenade, which became granat in German, Danish, and Swedish. Used in Swedish since 1578 (fruit, the compound granatäpple already in 1541), 1568 (mineral), 1623 (weapon).

Usage notes edit

In technical language, for example in formal names of weapons, "handgranat" seems to be fairly consistently used for hand grenades, to distinguish them from shells and non-handheld grenades. In other contexts, "granat" is often used instead of "handgranat," when clear from context.
