Etymology[edit]

From Old Portuguese vermello (red), from Vulgar Latin *vermiclus, from Latin vermiculus (little worm), from vermis (worm), ultimately in reference to Kermes vermilio, a type of scale insect used to make a crimson dye.

Cognate with Galician vermello, Spanish bermejo, Asturian bermeyu, Catalan vermell, Occitan vermelh, French vermeil and Italian vermiglio. Also related to English vermilion. Compare also Portuguese vermículo, which is a borrowed doublet.
