EtymologyEdit

From the Old Norse word knapi (valet) (whence also the Danish knabe (a page)) which was brought to Iceland from the Middle Low German knape as Icelanders were introduced to chivalric romances in the 13th century,[1] from West Germanic *knabō (whence the Old High German knabo whence the German Knabe (lad)).

Cognate with the Dutch knaap (lad) and English knave from the Old English cnafa (boy, servant).
