The modern English noun Greek ( Old English Grecas or Crecas ) is derived from the Latin Graeci , which in turn originates from Ancient Greek Γραικός ( Graikos ). It seems that the word is related with the Greek word γέρων geron , "old man" (from the PIE base *ǵerh 2 - , "to grow old") via Proto-Greek *gera- , "old age"—also related to Mycenean Greek kera /geras/, "gift of honour". [21] [22] The Germanic languages borrowed the name with an initial k sound, which was probably their initial sound closest to the Latin g (Goth. Kreks ). [23]
