Word Origin

Greek, early 20th century

Why this word?

This word comes from Romance languages: the Old French “fardel,” meaning “parcel, package, small pack”; the Portuguese “fardo,” meaning “load”; and the Spanish “fardo,” meaning “pack, bundle.” But instead of ultimately tracing the word back to Latin, etymologists place the root of the word in the Arabic “fardah,” meaning “package.”
