square at English => English (English Etymology) Of Explained:

c.1250, "tool for measuring right angles," from O.Fr. esquire "a square, squareness," from V.L. *exquadra, from *exquadrare "to square," from L. ex- "out" + quadrare "make square," from quadrus "square." Meaning "rectangular shape or area" is first recorded before 1382; that of "open space in a town or park" is from 1687. The adj. sense of "honest, fair" is first recorded 1591; that of "old-fashioned" is 1944, U.S. jazz slang, said to be from shape of a conductor's hand gestures in a regular four-beat rhythm. (Square-toes meant nearly the same thing in 1771, from a style of shoes then fallen from fashion.) The mathematical sense of "a number multiplied by itself" is first recorded 1557. ///
