Origen

Old English, from Old French acorder 'reconcile, be of one mind', from Latin ad- 'to' + cor, cord- 'heart'; influenced by concord.

More
  • chord from (Middle English):

    The sense of a group of musical notes was originally spelt cord and was a shortening of accord (Middle English) in the sense ‘bring into harmony’, which came from Latin accordere literally ‘to bring to heart’. The accordion (mid 19th century) ultimately gets its name from the same source. The sort of chord found in mathematics is also a respelling of cord, but this time in the sense ‘rope’. This was a Middle English word from Latin chorda, which came in turn from Greek khorde ‘gut, string of a musical instrument’. The spellings of both chords was changed to be more like their classical sources.
