Etymology[edit]

From Middle French avec, avecques (with), from Old French avoc, avoec, avuec (with), from an assumed Late Latin *aboc, *abhoc, *apud hŏque[1][2], a Frankish alteration consisting of Latin apud (with, near, close to) with hōc (this) and -que. First used as a replacement for Latin cum (with) in Merovingian and Carolingian (Frankish) documents. Gradually supplanted Old French od (with), itself from apud.[2] Cognate with Picard aveuc and Walloon avou.
