Origin of frother

  • From Middle English, alteration of frovre, frofre (“comfort”), from Old English frōfor (“consolation, joy, refuge, compensation, help, benefit”), from Proto-Germanic *frōbraz (“solace”), from Proto-Indo-European *trep-, *terp- (“to have good food, prosper, satiate, enjoy”). Cognate with Old Saxon frōvra, frōfra (“consolation, comfort, help”), Old High German fluobara (“consolation, comfort, help, assistance”).
