suzruge (s.xiii2/4)


[FEW: 10,535b rubeus; Gdf: 7,492b soubrouge; GdfC: ; TL: ; DEAF:  roge 1 (*); DMF:  sous-rouge; TLF: ; OED:  subred a. and n.; MED: ; DMLBS: 3255b subrubeus]
sorroge,  sorruge;  souzroge,  sozroge;  susroge;  suzrouge  

The use of a sor- prefix does not imply an etymological association with sur1 (from Latin super), but is the result of a process of assimilation of the consonants b/z/s and r to rr (i.e. Latin surrubeus instead of subrubeus).
