Etymology[edit]

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.
