Etymology 1Edit

Most likely grano (grain) +‎ -izo. Alternative and less likely etymologies derive it from Latin grandinem, accusative singular of grandō (hail, ice ball), through a Vulgar Latin root *grand(i)niceum (however this presents some phonetic difficulties), or perhaps later influenced by grano and -izo[1]. Compare a similar development in Occitan granissa. Cf. also Italian grandine.
