From Middle French, from Old French lisiere (border on the sides of a cloth, edge), of uncertain origin. Probably from Frankish rut, furrow, track, from Proto-Germanic *lisō, *laistiz, *laista-, *laisō (track, trace), from Proto-Indo-European *leyəs- (furrow, track), related to Old High German lesa (wrinkle, line), Old English lāst (footstep, track, trace), Gothic 𐌻𐌰𐌹𐍃𐍄𐍃 (laists, track, trace). Possibly influenced by Frankish border, edge, see liste, last.
