Etymology[edit]

From Middle French fange, from Old French fange (mud, addle, mire), from Gothic 𐍆𐌰𐌽𐌲𐌰 (fanga, mud, addle, mire), from Proto-Germanic *fangō (wetness, moisture), from Proto-Indo-European *pAnk- (mud, rot, filth). Cognate with Italian fango (mud, sludge) (from Germanic), German feucht (moist, damp), Dutch vocht (moisture, humidity), Old English fūht (moist, damp).

Alternative etymology derives the Old French word from Old Low Frankish *fani, *fanja (moor, swamp, mire), from Proto-Germanic *fanją (clay, mud, marsh), from Proto-Indo-European *pan- (mud, slush, morass), related to Old High German fenni (stagnant water, swamp, bog), Old English fenn (swamp, bog).
