SpanishEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Old Spanish fama, probably a semi-learned borrowing from Latin fāma (partly due to phonetic reasons: initial f did not become h, and because it preserved the Latin sense perfectly; additionally its derivatives are also learned[1]), ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *bheh₂-mā-, from *bheh₂- (to speak).

PronunciationEdit

NounEdit

fama f (plural famas)

  1. reputation
  2. fame
