Asturian gordu, Portuguese gordo, Catalan gord, French gourd
Gorda or perra gorda "10 cent coin," c. 1870, an uncommon name first made in reference to the 10 cent coins minted by the the provisional government of Spain of 1868-1871. The coin featured a lion with an unclear design that resembled more a fat dog than a stately lion. As the design has long since been retired, the name perra gorda has outlived the coin.
"Furthermore - returning to my original plan - words are either Latin or foreign. Foreign words, just like people, have come to us from almost every nation. ...I have heard that gurdus, the vulgar word for "fool," comes from Spain." ~ Quintilian, De institutione oratorio (in The Orator's Education 2002)
