Origin of umgang

  • From Middle English umgang, umbegang (“circumference, circuit”), from Old English ymbgang, ymbegang (“going about, going round, circuit, circumference, surrounding belt, a winding course, bend, a going about a business”), from Proto-Germanic *umbi + *gangaz (“a going”), equivalent to um- +‎ gang. Cognate with Dutch omgang (“dealing, handling”), German Umgang (“dealings, handling”), Danish and Swedish omgang (“game”). More at umbe-, gang.
