Etymology[edit]

Uncertain; several possibilities exist. Probably ultimately from Latin findere, through an alteration of its past participle fissus into a form *fictus > *fectus, later becoming feminine. (Compare the change from fixus to fitto). An alternative may be a Vulgar Latin offetta, diminutive of offa. Compare Spanish and Portuguese fita, Dalmatian fiata, Sicilian and Sardinian fitta.
