From French hangar ("shed, hangar"), from Middle French hanghart ("enclosure near a house"), of Germanic origin, from Frankish *haimgard ("fence around a group of houses"), from *haim ("home, village, hamlet") + *gard ("yard").

"home, village, hamlet" all locations in which people gather and share.
"hang'ar" is a shed to hold aircraft.

No references to pigs found except those that were hangar parties with pig roasts, and pigs in a blanket - hangar pancake breakfasts.
