Origin of nordic

  • French nordique from nord north from Old French nort from Old English north ner-1 in Indo-European roots

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

  • Unknown, possibly from the French word nord or the Dutch noord, both of which are used to refer to the northward direction. Compare to Old English norþ, the Proto-Germanic *nurþan, *nurþran (“north"), and to the Proto-Indo-European *ner- (“lower, bottom; to sink, shrivel").
