Note
Loanword from Gaulish; cf. Bret. couann, Welsh cuan. Also Fr. chevèche f. 'little owl, Athena noctua' seems to be connected with the root of Lat. cavannus (Fr. chat-huant), perhaps with suff. -ecca (TLF). And west Fr. dial. chouan 'owl', cf. Bret. couann, prob. altered by influence of Fr. chouette < OFr. choan (TLF).
