See also: mârri



From Middle French marri, from Old French mari (grieved, sad), past participle of marir (to get angry, become distressed), from Frankish *marrijan (to hinder, prevent, make angry), from Proto-Germanic *marzijaną (to prevent, obstruct, spoil), from Proto-Indo-European *mers- (to trouble, confuse, ignore, forget). Cognate with Old High German marrjan, marren (to prevent, bother, make angry). Compare also Old French esmeriz (flustered, grieved), from the same source. More at maraud, mar.
