Origin of exuberant

  • Middle English overabundant from Old French from Latin exūberāns exūberant- present participle of exūberāre to exuberate exuberate
    From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition
  • From Middle French exubérant, from Latin exūberāns, the present active participle of exūberō (“be abundant”). Put together from ex (“out”), and uber (“udder”), and originally would have referred to a cow or she-goat which was making so much milk that it naturally dripped or sprayed from the udder.
