Origin of wayment

Middle English waymenten, from Old Northern French waimenter "to lament" (compare Old French guaimenter, gaimenter "to lament"), a conflation of Old French wai, guai "woe", from Frankish *wai, wē "woe" from Proto-Germanic *wai (“woe”), and Latin lamentari "to lament". Akin to Old High German "woe" (German Weh "woe, pain"), Old English "woe". More at woe, lament.
