Origin of brag

Mid-14th c. Middle English braggen (“to make a loud noise; to speak boastfully”) of unknown origin. Possibly related to the early-14th c. Middle English adjective brag (“prideful, spirited”), probably from Celtic; or Old Norse bragr (“best, foremost; poetry”); or through Old English from Old Norse braka (“to creak”).
