French[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Middle French fange, from Old French fange ‎(mud, addle, mire), from Gothic 𐍆𐌰𐌽𐌲𐌰 ‎(fanga, mud, addle, mire), from Proto-Germanic *fangō ‎(wetness, moisture), from Proto-Indo-European *pAnk- ‎(mud, rot, filth). Cognate with Italian fango ‎(mud, sludge) (from Germanic), German feucht ‎(moist, damp), Dutch vocht ‎(moisture, humidity), Old English fūht ‎(moist, damp).

Alternative etymology derives the Old French word from Old Low Frankish *fani, *fanja ‎(moor, swamp, mire), from Proto-Germanic *fanją ‎(clay, mud, marsh), from Proto-Indo-European *pan- ‎(mud, slush, morass), related to Old High German fenni ‎(stagnant water, swamp, bog), Old English fenn ‎(swamp, bog). See fen.
