podnee (s.xii1)

[ gdw]

[ FEW: 22/i, 37b fier; orgueilleux /9,479b prothyrum; Gdf: 6,241a podnei /6,328b posnee /6,329a posnois; GdfC: ; TL: 7,1635 posnee /7,1637 posnoi /7,1637 posnois; DEAF: ; DMF:  posnée; TLF: ; OED: ; MED: ; DMLBS: ]
podné,  podnei,  podneiz;  ponee,  ponnee,  posnee,  pounee,  dosnoi posnoi?  630 (var.) pondie  

The etymology of this word remains problematic, and the FEW’s proposed association with prothyrum (‘einfriedigung vor der tür’, i.e. ‘grill or fence in front of a door’) and its cognate expression faire le prorne (i.e. ‘to boast’), attested only once in a thirteenth-century Picard text, is certainly not the complete answer (cf. Baldinger, Etymologien iii 291-92).
