The Spanish for “bread,” pan, sounds nothing at all like its English equivalent.
But it is, indeed, a close cousin of another English word: companion.
All over the ancient world, bread was the sign of friendship and peace. Hence English phrases like, to “break bread.”
In Ancient Rome, your friend — literally, your companion — was someone you broke bread with. Companion, com – pan, con – pan = with bread.
