“the first part of the day, the morning”, 14世纪晚期, 从中古英语 morwen, morghen, 从古英语(Mercian) margen (dative marne), 更早的 morgen (dative morgne) “morning, forenoon, sunrise”, 从原日耳曼语 *murgana- “morning” (来源也是古撒克逊语 morgan. 古弗里斯兰语 morgen, 中荷兰语 morghen, 荷兰语 morgen, 古高德语 morgan, 德语 Morgen, 哥特语 maurgins), 来自于PIE *merk-, 或许来自于词根 *mer- “眨眼, 闪烁” (立陶宛语 mirgėti “眨眼” 的来源). 到了19世纪末, 被贬为诗歌.
