Etymology 1Edit

Wikipedia

The name euro was the winner of a contest open to the general public to propose names for the new European currency, and as such is technically a neologism, although it obviously alludes to the common root of geographical names for the continent Europe, derived from Latin Europa, from Ancient Greek Εὐρώπη (Eurṓpē), the name in Greek mythology of a princess, abducted by Zeus as a bull across the Bosphorus.

Alternative formsEdit

NounEdit

euro (plural euros or euro)

  1. The currency unit of the European Monetary Union. Symbol:
  2. A coin with a face value of 1 euro.
  3. An abbreviation for European in any sense; e.g. "euro size"; "euro style pad".
Usage notesEdit
  • The plural recommended for use in official European documents written in English has been euro for some time, but this recommendation has been amended to euros. However, in Irish English the plural euro is now well-established.
