guy
guy: English has two separate words guy. The guy of guy rope [14] was probably borrowed from a Low German word (of which Dutch gei ‘rope used for hauling a sail in’ may well be a descendant), but its ultimate ancestry is not clear. Guy ‘fellow, man’ [19] originated as an American English generalization of guy ‘effigy of Guy Fawkes burned on 5 November’ – a sense first recorded in 1806.
guy (n.1)
"small rope, chain, wire," 1620s, nautical; earlier "leader" (mid-14c.), from Old French guie "a guide," also "a crane, derrick," from guier (see guide (v.)); or from a related word in North Sea Germanic.
guy (n.2)
"fellow," 1847, American English; earlier, in British English (1836) "grotesquely or poorly dressed person," originally (1806) "effigy of Guy Fawkes," leader of the Gunpowder Plot to blow up British king and Parliament (Nov. 5, 1605). The effigies were paraded through the streets by children on the anniversary of the conspiracy. The male proper name is from French, related to Italian Guido.
