Etymology[edit]

By liquid metathesis from Proto-Slavic *moldъ, from Proto-Balto-Slavic *maldas, from Proto-Indo-European *(h₂)moldos (soft, weak). Cognates include Old Prussian maldai (boys), Latin mollis (soft, weak), Ancient Greek βλαδύς (bladús, weak), μελδω (meldō)(transitive)/μελδομαι (meldomai)(intransitive) and ἀμαλδύνω (amaldúnō, to weaken, destroy). Other Germanic Indo-European cognates evolved from the meaning of soften: English smelt(transitive)/melt(intransitive), German schmelzen, probably Swedish smultron[1], Frankish *smalt (whence French émail).
