Origin of member

  • Middle English membre from Old French from Latin membrum

    From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition

  • From Middle English membre, from Old French membre, from Latin membrum (“limb, body part”), from Proto-Indo-European *memso-, *mems-ro (“flesh”). Akin to Gothic * (mimz, “meat, flesh”), Crimean Gothic menus.

    From Wiktionary

  • Coexists with native Middle English lim, limb (“member, limb, joint”) (from Old English lim (“limb, joint, main branch”)), and displaced Middle English lith (“limb, joint, member”) (from Old English liþ (“limb, member, join, tip”)).
