Etymology[edit]

From Middle English orgul, orgel, partly from Old English orgol, orgel (pride), perhaps from a Proto-Germanic *uzgōluz, equivalent to or- (out) +‎ *gōl (boast; showiness; pomp; splendor), related to Old English galan ("to sing"; > Modern English gale). Also perhaps partly from Old French orgoill, from Vulgar Latin *orgōllia, *orgōlla, from Frankish *orgōllja, from the same Proto-Germanic source. Cognate with Old High German urguol, urguoli, urgilo (pride) and Spanish enorgullecer.
