Roots

Latin germen (sprig, offshot, bud) is presumed to be from the Indo-European “root” gen (to give birth, beget).

No disappearing R trick is needed to link GERM to GaRahM (to cause, bring about).  GaRaH is to provoke or produce – see GUERRILLA.  GoaLeM (embryo, fetus - Psalms139:16) is but a GRM → GLM liquid shift  away.


Branches

GaR[E]eYN is a seed or kernel. Switch letters #2 and #3 of  GaRaM (to bring about) to get an antonym for GERMINATING - GaMaR (to finish, complete - Psalms12:2).    The GERMINAL figure of the German people might be Gomer or his son Togarmah (Genesis10:2-3), the brother of Ashkenaz (Germany).

For the origin of Indo-European gen, see "ORIGIN.
