@joshupetersen Except the Danish word for woman (kvinde) comes from Old Norse "kvenna," a conjugation of another word, "kona," which means a (married) woman.
Woman comes from wīfmon, which means "wife man", and the "wer" of "werewolf" also means man in old English. (Both origins are according to the Oxford Dictionary)
Another example of wer=man can be seen in the word weregild, or "man price". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weregild
