Etymology

O.E. bendan "to confine with a string," causative of bindan "to bind," from P.Gmc. base *band- "string, band" (cf. O.N. benda "to join, strain, strive, bend"), from PIE base *bhendh- (cf. Goth. bindan, O.H.G. bintan, Skt. badhnati "binds," Lith. bendras "partner;" O.Pers. bandaka- "subject"). Modern sense (c.1320) is via notion of bending a bow to string it. Cognate with band, bind, and bond). The noun meaning "thing of bent shape" is from c.1600. The bends "decompression pain" first attested 1894. Bender "drinking bout" is U.S. slang, first attested 1846.
