Note
Generally said to be from Lat. gladius m. ‘sword’ <- PCelt. *gladio-, *kladio- 'sword'; an alternative hypothesis is that OFr. glaive is a loan from a Brittonic *klafido (from PCelt. *kladyo, compare Lat. gladius), introduced in Gaul with the Brittonic invasion, ca. 460 onwards, become *glafido under influence of Lat. gladius (TLF).
