Idioms and Phrasal Verbs
Origin of fiend
- Middle English from Old English fēond pē(i)- in Indo-European roots
From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition
- From Middle English feend (“enemy, demon”), from Old English fēond (“enemy”), from Proto-Germanic *fijandz. Cognate with Old Norse fjándi (Icelandic fjandi, Danish fjende, Swedish fiende), West Frisian fijân, Low German Feend, Fiend, Dutch vijand, German Feind, Gothic (fijands), all of them meaning foe. The Old Norse and Gothic terms are present participles of the corresponding verbs fjá/fijan, to hate. Akin to Sanskrit पियति (piyati, “(he) reviles”).
