Origin of pomade

  • French pommade from Italian pomata from pomo apple from Late Latin pōmum pome
    From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition
  • French pommade (“ointment"), from Italian pomata, from pomo (“apple"), as such ointments were originally made from apples, + -ata (“(collective)") (English -ade). Pomo is in turn from Latin pomum.
