Italian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Uncertain; probably related to French vogue, meaning "wave; course of success", and the verb voguer (travel through the water), and possibly of Germanic origin[1], from a root *wagōną. Probably ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *weǵʰ- (to move, go, transport). Compare Spanish bogar, Catalan and Portuguese vogar, Sicilian vucari. An alternative theory derives it from Latin vocō, vocāre (call)[2][3][4]. Cf. also Ancient Greek βαυκάλη (baukálē).
