Happy New Year to all A whimsical question if anybody can help. This was sparked when I looking up le lapin de garenne which I saw defined as a wild rabbit. I came across a fascinating thread discussing garenne at: http://forum.wordreference.com/showthread.php?t=1657409 What is the origin of the name Garenne-Colombes? It is located in the north-western suburbs of Paris and according to Wiki is one of the most densely populated municipalities in Europe. Has the name anything to do with an overcrowded rabbit warren, or a woody dove park or is it something else? Thank you.
