Note
First attested ca. 1100 (TLF). Further etymology uncertain: many sources state that Lat. leopardus is a borrowing from Gr. λεόπαρδος, but RB disagrees: "Starting from the Iliad, the normal word for 'leopard' was πάρδαλις. Probably, λεόπαρδος was formally influenced by Lat. pardus, leopardus, or even a borrowing from Latin. The analysis as a compound of λέων and πάρδος is doubtful, because πάρδος is only attested (once), and λεο- instead of λεοντο- is rare” (RB).
