Old EnglishEdit

EtymologyEdit

From earlier *grœ̄ni [ˈɣrøː.ni], from Anglo-Frisian *grōni, from West Germanic *grōni, from Northwest Germanic *grōniz, from Proto-Germanic *grōniz. Cognate with Old Frisian grēne (West Frisian grien), Old Saxon grōni (Low German grön), Old Dutch gruoni (Dutch groen), Old High German gruoni (German grün), Old Norse grœnn (Icelandic grænn, Swedish grön). The Gothic form would be *𐌲𐍂𐍉𐌽𐍃 (*grōns), but is unattested.
