Origin of forfare

  • From Middle English forfaren, from Old English forfaran (“to pass away, perish, lose, destroy, ruin, cause to perish, intercept, obstruct”), from Proto-Germanic *fra- + *faraną, equivalent to for- +‎ fare. Cognate with Scots forfar (“to go amiss, decay, perish”), Old Frisian forfara (“to die”), German verfahren (“to use up, spend, lose one's way”), Old Danish forfare (“to perish”). More at for-, fare.
