Etymology[edit]

From a "re-Latinization" of an earlier form rumân or rumîn (although this form would have been mostly represented in Cyrillic at the time it was used), itself inherited from Latin rōmānus. The older form rumân also meant peasant, or a serf who worked the land (in feudal medieval Wallachia). In popular speech, it also has the meaning of a husband or man in general, but this is now archaic. Doublet of roman, a later borrowing.
