EtymologyEdit

From earlier English ternado, attested since the 1550s as a nautical term for a windy thunderstorm.[1] From Spanish tronada (thunderstorm), from tronar (to thunder), from Latin tonō (to thunder), from Proto-Indo-European *(s)tenh₂- (to thunder). The o and r were reversed in English (metathesis) under influence of Spanish tornar (to twist, to turn), from Latin tornō (to turn).
