Origin of guarantee

  • Alteration of Middle English garant warranty from Old French guaranty

    From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition

  • From Old French guarantie (perhaps via a later Spanish garante), from the verb guarantir (“to protect, assure, vouch for”), ultimately from Old Frankish *warjand, *warand (“a warrant”), or from guaranty. Compare guaranty, warranty.
