English[edit]

Etymology[edit]

French Séoul, which is from Korean 서울 (Seoul, literally capital city).

Note that English Seoul predates the Revised Romanization romanization of Seoul. Note also that the original French segmentation was Sé-oul (cf. Dutch Seoel, i.e. Se-oel), but was reinterpreted as Seo-ul with Revised Romanization. A direct borrowing from Korean would probably result in "Soul", based on McCune–Reischauer romanization "Sŏul".
