We should not be relying on works nearly two centuries old as etymological authorities. No modern historical linguist is going to accept Latin as the daughter language of Greek. The idea is completely indefensible.
You must be kidding! All words of all languages come from Greek. Haven't you seen my big fat Greek wedding where the father of the bride explains how "kimono" comes from "Ï‡ÎµÎ¹Î¼ÏŽÎ½" ?
Edit. Found the quote:"Kimono, kimono, kimono. Ha! Of course! Kimono is come from the Greek word himona, is mean winter. So, what do you wear in the wintertime to stay warm? A robe. You see: robe, kimono. There you go!"
