From cable, an Old Northern French (i.e. Old Norman or Picard) variant of chable, cheable, chaable, from Vulgar Latin *caplum, contracted form of Late Latin capulum, from Latin capiō. The Norman-Picard form, used primarily in a maritime sense, coexisted with the Francien dialect forms until replacing them by the 18th century. The Old French forms cheable and chaable were crossed with or influenced by the separate word chaable (“catapult”), from a Vulgar Latin *cadabulum.
