Origin of wallop

  • Middle English walopen to gallop from Old North French waloper wel-1 in Indo-European roots

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

  • From Middle English wallopen (“gallop"), from Anglo-Norman, from Old Northern French walop (“gallop (noun)") and waloper (“to gallop (verb)") (compare Old French galoper, whence modern French galoper), from Frankish *wala hlaupan (“to run well") from *wala (“well") + *hlaupan (“to run"), from Proto-Germanic *hlaupanÄ… (“to run, leap, spring"), from Proto-Indo-European *klaup-, *klaub- (“to spring, stumble"). Possibly also derived from a deverbal of Frankish *walhlaup (“battle run") from *wal (“battlefield") from a Proto-Germanic word meaning "dead, victim, slain" from Proto-Indo-European *wel- (“death in battle, killed in battle") + *hlaup (“course, track") from *hlaupan (“to run"). Compare the doublet gallop.
