French[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Old French halaigre, from Latin alacer, alacrem(lively; happy, joyful). The Old French form alegre derived from a Vulgar Latin form *alacru, and the form (h)aliegre from an *alĕcru. The transition of Latin -cr- to French -gr- is irregular; it may have been influenced partly by Old Provençal alegre. Doublet of allegro.
