Etymology

edit

Borrowed from Portuguese manga, from Malayalam മാങ്ങ (māṅṅa) / Tamil மாங்காய் (māṅkāy), possibly via Malay mangga, ultimately from Proto-South Dravidian *mām-kāy (unripe mango), a compound of *mām (mango tree) + *kāy (unripe fruit).[1] First used for the fruit as early as the 1580s and the tree by the 1670s.[2][3] The Oxford English Dictionary says it ultimately stems from Malayalam മാങ്ങ (māṅṅa, unripe mango) (മാവ് (māvŭ, mango tree) + കായ (kāya, unripe fruit)),[3] while the Online Etymology Dictionary points to Tamil மாங்காய் (māṅkāy, unripe mango) (மா (, mango) + காய் (kāy, unripe fruit)).[2] The etymology of the -o ending is not certain.[3]

Latin

Etymology

edit

Uncertain; but perhaps an agent noun related to Ancient Greek μαγγανεύω (manganeúō, enchant, use charms) and secondarily trick out, dress artificially,[1][2] from the noun μάγγανον (mánganon, philtre, charm, means for bewitching others). Buck suggests that Latin mangō is a loanword based (ultimately or otherwise) on the Greek noun.[3]

Alternatively, derived from manus (hand) via an unattested verb such as *manicō or *manigō (handle, manage; trade, deal?) (both requiring an unusual syncope of the verb suffix, the former also requiring an unusual voicing of /k/) +‎ (agent noun suffix). This would make it related to manceps (purchaser; contractor) and mancipium (property, slave), whence perhaps the sense of slave-trader. The semantic trajectory would be similar to that of German handeln (to handle; to trade, deal), ultimately from Proto-Germanic *handuz (hand).
