hérisson

FrenchEdit

EtymologyEdit

From a hypothetical Old French *eriz, from Latin erīcius (hedgehog), with the suffix -on added later. Another possibilty may be a Vulgar Latin root *erīcio, ericione, but this would have seemingly produced an *erçon in Old French. Compare, however, Catalan eriçó and Romansch erizun.
