Bra­zo and Bra, Bracelet

The Span­ish bra­zo (“arm”) comes from the Latin brac­chi­um mean­ing, “up­per arm.” The Latin it­self comes from the Greek brakhion. From these, we get Eng­lish words such as bra (more rec­og­niz­able if we re­mem­ber the old­er, and orig­i­nal French, form of the word, bras­sière) as well as bracelet

We can see the br‑c and its vari­a­tions (br‑z, br‑s) in all the ver­sions of the word.
