My Swedish teacher said the same about ombudsman and smorgasbord :lol: thats all I've got go from.
The latter is correct - the ombudsman(d) can be debated, but at the time of origin all the Nordic languages were even more connected than today. We’ll never know for sure - and are probably not worse off :)

Having a de facto contretemps has become de rigueur nowadays, though there’s no a priori reason to suppose the injured parties couldn’t just have a little ad hoc tête-à-tête vis-à-vis the issue du jour. A propos, those of an antisocial milieu may have developed their elan via parkour, which gives too a certain esprit de corps resulting in added panache.

Etcetera.
