drake
{{11}}drake (1) "male duck," c.1300, unrecorded in O.E. but may have existed then, from W.Gmc. *drako (Cf. Low Ger. drake, second element of O.H.G. anutrehho, Ger. dial. drache).
{{12}}drake (2) archaic for "dragon," from O.E. draca "dragon, sea monster, huge serpent," from P.Gmc. *drako (Cf. M.Du., O.Fris. drake, Du. draak, O.H.G. trahho, Ger. drache), an early borrowing from L. draco (see DRAGON (Cf. dragon)).
