Etymology[edit]

From Old French vogue, from the verb voguer (to sway, move along), from Old Italian vogare, of Germanic origin, from Old Saxon wagon (to float, move as in waves).[1]

Related to modern French vogue (wave; course of success), and the verb voguer (move through the water). Compare Italian vogare, Catalan vogar, and Portuguese vogar.

An alternative, perhaps less likely, theory derives it from Latin vocō, vocāre (call), referring to the commanding voice of the rowing leader.[2]
