The word lanyard comes from the French word “laniere” which means strap or thong. They were first used by French soldiers and pirates in the early 1500’s as a means to keep their weapons close at hand when climbing the rigging of their ships or engaging in combat.
Today they have many uses, including attaching to whistles!
