Etymology of dragon, dragoon
Posted by Johannes on 2 June 2012
The word dragon comes from the Old French dragon, which in turn comes from the Latin draconem [huge serpent, dragon], from the Greek word drakon [serpent, giant seafish; Gr: δράκων].
From the same root: dragoon, dragonet
In modern Greek (Romeika, Rumca):
a) drakos: dragon [Gr: δράκος]
