- drake: English has two words drake, but the older, ‘dragon’ [OE] (which comes via prehistoric West Germanic *drako from Latin dracō, source of English dragon), has now more or less disappeared from general use (it is still employed for a sort of fishing fly). Drake ‘male duck’  probably goes back to (another) prehistoric West Germanic *drako, preserved also in the second element of German enterich ‘male duck’.
- drake (n.1)
- "male duck," c. 1300, unrecorded in Old English but may have existed then, from West Germanic *drako (cognates: Low German drake, second element of Old High German anutrehho, dialectal German Drache).
- drake (n.2)
- archaic for "dragon," from Old English draca "dragon, sea monster, huge serpent," from Proto-Germanic *drako (cognates: Middle Dutch and Old Frisian drake, Dutch draak, Old High German trahho, German drache), an early borrowing from Latin draco (see dragon).
