Etymology[edit]

From Middle English Jarwe, Jaruum, from Old English In Ġyrwum ((at the) marshes) (Latin: In Gyruum), dative plural of ġyru (mud; marsh), from Proto-Germanic *gurwijō (mud) from Proto-Indo-European *gʷʰer- (warm; hot). Related to gore, from Proto-Germanic *gurą (half-digested stomach contents; feces; manure). The sound in Middle English j derives from a nasal before palatalised ġ (compare singe).
