Lazar and Las­so

Lazar (Span­ish for “to tie, such as with a rib­bon”) comes from the Latin laque­um, mean­ing “a tie, such as a noose”. From that same root, we get the Eng­lish… las­so. A las­so, af­ter all, is re­al­ly a ca­ble that can be used to tie some­one or some­thing up…!

The l‑z of lazar clear­ly maps to the l‑ss of las­so.
