Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Malayic *limaw, from Proto-Malayo-Polynesian *limaw; reconstructed by Robert Blust (compare Old Javanese limo (a citrus fruit, the lime); also compare Fijian moli (an orange, general name for species of citrus fruits), Tongan moli (orange or other citrus fruit) that assumed to have undergo metathesis).[1]

The claim that this form is derived from Portuguese limão is false based on the cognates found in Old Javanese and Oceanic languages.
