Etymology : The citizens of Gascony in southwestern France have proverbially been regarded as prone to bragging. Their reputation has been immortalized in such swashbuckling literary works as Alexandre Dumas’ The Three Musketeers and Edmond Rostand’s Cyrano de Bergerac. Linguistically, the legend survives in the word gascon, meaning “braggart,” as well as in “gasconade” itself.
