replete (adj.)

late 14c., "filled (with something); completely full, filled to satisfaction," from Old French replet "filled up" (14c.) and directly from Latin repletus "filled, full," past participle of replere "to fill; fill again, re-fill," from re- "back, again" (here perhaps an intensive prefix based on the notion of "fill repeatedly," thus "fill completely;" see re-) + plere "to fill" (from PIE root *pele- (1) "to fill"). Related: Repleteness.
