Origin of Lunch
Recorded since 1580; presumably short for luncheon, apparently an alteration from nuncheon, nonechenche "light mid-day meal", itself from none "noon" (from Latin nonus) + schench "drink" (from Old English scenc, from scencan "pour out") and altered by northern English dialect lunch "hunk of bread or cheese" (1590), which probably is from Spanish lonja "a slice" (literally "loin")
