Etymology[edit]

From Middle French macquiller (to work, do), partly from Old French *makier (to build, make), from Frankish *makjan, *makōn or Old Dutch macōn (to make, do), both from Proto-West Germanic *makōn (to build, work, make), from Proto-Indo-European *mag- (to knead, mix, make); partly from Picard maquier, makier (to make, do), from Middle Dutch maken (to make, do). Akin to Old High German mahhōn (to make, do) (German machen), Old English macian (to make, build). More at mason, make.
