[ FEW: ; Gdf: ; GdfC: ; TL: ; DEAF:  recopre / coup (recoupee); DMF: ; TLF: ; OED: ; MED: ; DMLBS: 2685c recopia ]
recopé,  recopee,  recopeye,  recopie,  recoupé;  reucopeu,  reucoupé,  recopre (l. recopie?) recuper  

The etymology of the term is unclear. The Latin cognate, recopia, is only attested from the fifteenth century, and is likely to derive from the Anglo-Norman term. The form suggests that the plant name may be related to recouper1 (‘to cut back, clip’).
