- warren:  A warren is etymologically a ‘fenced-off’ area. The word was acquired from warenne, the Anglo-Norman version of Old French garenne ‘game-park’. This in turn came from Gaulish *varrenna ‘area bounded by a fence’, which was derived from *varros ‘post’. The specific link with rabbits (originally as a reserve set aside for breeding rabbits, now an area where wild rabbits live) is a secondary development.
- warren (n.)
- late 14c., "piece of land enclosed for breeding beasts and fowls," from Anglo-French and Old North French warenne (Old French garenne) "game park, hunting reserve," possibly from Gaulish *varenna "enclosed area," related to *varros "post." More likely from the present participle of Old North French warir (Old French garir) "defend, keep," from Proto-Germanic *war- "to protect, guard" (see warrant (n.)). Later especially "piece of land for breeding of rabbits" (c. 1400), which led to the transferred sense of "cluster of densely populated living spaces" (1640s).
