Maltese[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Probably from Sicilian fusu, from Latin fusus (spindle); but perhaps merged with Arabic فُؤُوس(fuʾūs), plural of فَأْس(faʾs, literally axe), which is used figuratively for different kinds of protrusions (or is it conceivable that this Arabic use is itself influenced by the Latin?). The plural in -ien at any rate speaks in favour of an early borrowing.
