  • Origin unknown

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

  • From Middle English misellen (“to drizzle"). Cognate with Low German musseln (“to mizzle"), Dutch miezelen (“to drizzle, rain gently"). Of obscure origin, but apparently related to Middle Low German mes (“urine"), Middle Dutch mes, mis (“urine"), both from Old Saxon mehs (“urine"), from Proto-Germanic *mihstuz, *mihstaz, *mihsk- (“urine"), from Proto-Germanic *mÄ«ganÄ… (“to urinate"), from Proto-Indo-European *meiǵʰ-, *omeiǵʰ- (“to urinate"). Compare also English micturate (“to urinate"), Old Frisian mese (“urine"), Low German miegen (“to urinate"), Dutch mijgen (“to urinate"), Danish mige (“to urinate").
