In this case is just "gw"+vowel who gave a "b" in romanian.
Unfortunately we have again irregularities like:

a intreba= to ask, from the Latin "interrogare" where a simple "ga" gave
to an "b" in Romanian.
sîngera= to blood from Latin "sanguinare", where expected was
"sâmbinare" not "sângera" ( with affricated "g")
lingoare= typhoid fever from Latin languor,-languoris

It seems, as usual, how many rules , so many exceptions.
