Subject: About the gannet and John of Gaunt
I'm searching the etymology of the bird called
gannet (Sula bassana). His dutch name is "Jan van gent".
verbatim John of Gaunt.
What is the link betwen gannet and Gaunt?
Is there something in John of Gaunt's life that
led to give his name to a bird?
Thanks.
