Etymology of macaroni

Posted by Johannes on 14 April 2020

Etymology of macaroni

The word MACARONI derives from the southern Italian dialect word macceroni (pl. of maccarone) from maccare, which is related to the Greek macariaa food made from barley.

In modern Greek

macaroni: macaroni, pasta (μακαρόνι)

OED

Η λέξη MACARONI προέρχεται από τη λέξη της διαλέκτου της νοτίου Ιταλίας macceroni (από το maccare) η οποία σχετίζεται με την ελληνική λέξη μακαρία, που ήταν φαγητό φτιαγμένο από κριθάρι.
