I never heard of adding sherry, but it sounds good

Sounds like Wiki could use an update from someone who knows.

From https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/cygnet
Noun cygnet (plural cygnets)
  1. The immature young of a swan.
Etymology

From Middle English cignet, signet, from Anglo-Norman cignet, diminutive of Old French cigne (“swan”), from Latin cygnus, cycnus (“swan”), from Ancient Greek κύκνος (kýknos, “swan”).


I'm curious why the say it is from Old French "cigne", when it's spelled with a "y" and the modern French words for "swan" and "cygnet" are "cygne" and "cygnet".
