late Old English gewær, from Proto-Germanic *ga-waraz (cognates: Old Saxon
giwar, Middle Dutch gheware, Old High German giwar, German gewahr), from *ga-,
intensive prefix, + waraz "wary, cautious"
Old English wilcuma "welcome!" exclamation of kindly greeting, from earlier wilcuma (n.) "welcome guest," literally "one whose coming suits another's will or wish,"
from willa "pleasure, desire, choice" (see will (n.)) + cuma "guest," related to cuman
(see come). Similar formation in Old High German willicomo, Middle Dutch wellecome. Meaning "entertainment or public reception as a greeting" is recorded from 1530. The adjective is from Old English wilcuma. You're welcome as a formulaic response to thank you is attested from 1907. Welcome mat is from 1908; welcome wagon is attested from 1940.參考資料： 字源學
