The origin of the word 'Bonspiel' is primarily Gaelic.

Since curling is believed to have originated in Scotland, it is likely that "bonspiel" is a modern adaptation of the Scottish Gaelic words "bonn" (coin) and "spéil" (skate) meaning "coin skate" or "cornerstone skate" (archaic definition).

"Spiel" may also have been a Germanic borrowing, meaning "game". In that case, the word may have meant "cornerstone game".
