In the sense 'stew', from Middle French haricot, a deverbal derivation of Old French harigoter (to shred, slice up, slice into pieces), from Frankish *hariōn (to ruin, lay waste, ravage, plunder, destroy), from Proto-Germanic *harjōną (to plunder, lay waste, harry). Cognate with Middle High German verheeren (to harry). More at harry.

In the sense 'bean', etymology uncertain. Influenced in form by the 'stew' word, if not originally identical to it; in that case possibly from Mexican Spanish ayacotli, ayacote, or possibly from Calicut.
