EtymologyEdit

From Middle Dutch orloge, from Old Dutch *urlage. In this word, two Germanic words merged, both having the prefix ur- (modern Dutch oor and oer, with the former kept in compounds like oorzaak ‎(cause, driver) and oorsprong ‎(origin), and the latter borrowed from German). The first word was derived from Proto-Germanic *uzlagą meaning "fate, destiny", with *laga- related to modern Dutch leggen ‎(to lay). The second word was derived from Proto-Germanic *uzleugō meaning "war", with *leug- meaning "oath".
