Origin of garcon

From the French garçon (1788), from Old French garçun (“servant”), oblique case of gars, from Frankish *wrakjō (“servant, boy”), from Proto-Germanic *wrakjô (“exile, driven one”), from Proto-Indo-European *wreg- (“to drive”). Cognate with Old High German wrecheo, recko (“exile, warrior, hero”) (Modern German Recke), Old Saxon wrekkio (“a banished person, exile, stranger”), Old English wrecca (“a wretch, stranger, exile”), and perhaps to Old Norse rekkr (“man, warrior, hero”). More at wretch, wreak.
