Re: Sand?

In old German, it was "Zand." The further back you, the more it changes, of course. I am just curious to know on why "sand" is called sand... Does it have something to do with deserts? the sea and the land?

Sand?

A friend and I are having a serious debate on the word “sand” and how it came to be. I’ve done plenty of research- but cannot find much except it came from the German “zand.” Can anyone please help me out? :)
