EtymologyEdit

From Middle French flot (considerable quantity of poured liquid, stream, flow), from Old French flot (mass of moving water, flood, tidal flow), partly from Old Norse flóð (stream, river, flood, massive flow of water); partly from Frankish *flota (flux, streaming flow); and partly from Frankish *flōd (river, flood); all from Proto-Germanic *flōduz (river), Proto-Germanic *flutōną (flow), from Proto-Indo-European *plōw- (to pour, wash). Cognate with Old Dutch fluod (river), Old High German fluot (flood), Old English flōd (river, flood), Gothic 𐍆𐌻𐍉𐌳𐌿𐍃 (flōdus, river, stream). More at fleuve, flood, flow.
