English - Etymology

From Middle English _brasen_, from Old English _bræsen_ (“brazen, of brass”), equivalent to _brass_ +‎ _-en_ (compare _golden_). Sense was originally literally “of brass”; figurative verb sense "_brazen it out_" (face impudently) from 1550s, and adjective sense “impudent” from 1570s. Figurative sense perhaps evoking “face unmoving, not showing shame”.
