Origin of sable

Attested since 1275, from Middle English, from Old French sable and martre sable (“sable martin"), in reference to the animal or its fur; from Middle Low German sabel (compare Middle Dutch sabel, Middle High German zobel); ultimately from an Old Slavonic or Baltic word (compare Russian соболь (sobolʹ), Polish soból, Czech sobol). Compare also Persian samōr.
