roal2 (c.1300)


[ FEW: ; Gdf: ; GdfC: ; TL: ; DEAF:  robert (roal); DMF: ; TLF: ; OED: ; MED: ; DMLBS: ]

The etymology of this plant name remains obscure, but may be the same as that of real1. The AND definition is derived from the Latin term it glosses. For a similar (and equally obscure) plant name, see regal2.


1bot.herb Robert, species of crane's-bill or geranium, Geranium Robertianum (?)
( MS: c.1300 )  Herba Roberti: (A2) gallice roal  139
