    Etymology 1

    (etyl) Lady Gunilda which was a huge crossbow that used powerful shot. It later became used for firearms like cannons and muskets. The (etyl) woman’s name “Gundahild” is cognate to modern Scandinavian Gunhild. In Old Norse gunnr meant “battle", “war" + hildr (Old English cognate: hild), a word also meaning battle (for its usage as a female name see: Hilda), but in this context means "battle maid”.
