EtymologyEdit

From Middle English laumpe, lampe, borrowed from Old French lampe (lamp, light), from Latin lampas (torch, lamp, light), from Ancient Greek λαμπάς (lampás, torch, lamp, beacon, light, meteor), from Proto-Indo-European *lāp- (to shine). Cognate with Lithuanian lópė (light), Welsh llachar (bright). Replaced Middle English leohtfet, lihtfat (lamp, sconce, candlestick), from Old English lēohtfæt (lamp, lantern, torch, light, literally light-vat, light-vessel).
