Abstract:Adding new data and corrections, we discuss some other contoversial etymologies: Rom. frigider ‘Frigidaire’, ‘fridge’ is not a French loan, but a USA Trade Mark since 1918, borrowed as common name in Romanian, before World War II (see also Chambers DE; Dubois, Mitterand, Dauzat, DÉHF). Rom. molid (molidv, molift etc.) ‘spruce fir (picea excelsa)’, as well as molete, regional generic name of several coniferous trees: ‘pine’, ‘knee pine’, ‘larch fir’, ‘fir’, ‘spruce fir’, ‘dwarfish juniper’ are derived from an Autochtonous (Illyrian-Daco-Thracian) radical *mol'- ‘dark or russet colour of wood or bark’, cf. Alb. molikë ‘silver fir’, ‘Balkan pine’, cf. Serb. and Bulg. molika idem (see Jokl, LKUBA, 196–199, P. Skok, ERHSJ, 451). Rom. molete could be compared both to Rom. molid ‘spruce fir’ and druete ‘log or piece of wood’, cf. the Dacian town ∆ρουβητής, cf. Alb. dru ‘wood’.
