Latin[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Transalpine Gaulish, of Germanic origin, from Proto-Germanic *hamiþiją (clothes, shirt, skirt), from Proto-Indo-European *ḱam- (cover, clothes). (The shift s indicates a Celtic intermediary, as words borrowed directly from Germanic into Latin show t.)

Cognate with Old High German hemidi (shirt) (German Hemd), Old English hemeþe (shirt), ham (undergarment), hama (covering, dress, garment). More at hame.
