French[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Middle French trouvere, from Old French trovere (nominative singular case of troveor, from trover (to find) + -eor (agent noun suffix)), or possibly corresponding to a Gallo-Vulgar Latin *tropātor, from the verb *tropō, tropāre, from Latin tropus. Cognate with Old Provençal (and Modern Occitan and Catalan) trobador (the form trouvère is directly cognate with the Occitan form trobaire, itself from the nominative singular case of the corresponding Old Provençal form), from the verb trobar (to find).
