The Vikings also spread the word for the left side of the ship "babord", which is the precise term still used both in Norwegian and French, even though the Viking occupation of Normandy ended some 1000 years ago. In English, "labord" was used until it was replaced by "port".

So is "port" in this case just a cognate of "bord"?
