English[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Korean 서울 (Seoul, literally capital city), using a variant of Claude-Charles Dallet's French-based romanization of Korean, reinforced by the 1959 South Korean Ministry of Education romanization of Korean, which adopted Dallet's treatment of transcribing the Korean vowel (/ʌ/) with the digraph "eo" and which was official until 1984.

Note that English Seoul predates the Revised Romanization romanization of Seoul. The two romanization systems simply produce identical forms.
