French[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From rêver (to dream), from Middle French resver (to wander, be lost in vague thoughts, guess inaccurately), from Old French resver (to consider, reflect, be delirious), probably from Frankish *rēswan, *rāswan (to consider, conjecture, guess), from Proto-Germanic *rēswaną (to think, reckon, calculate), from Proto-Indo-European *rei- (to reason, count). Cognate with Old English rǣswan (to think, consider, suspect, conjecture). Related to Gothic [script?] (raþjō, account, number, explanation), Old High German rīm (number). More at rhyme.
