Etymology[уреди]

From Средњи Енглески flawme, flaume, flaumbe, blend of Стари Француски flame and flambe, flamble, the first from Латински flamma, the second from Латински flammula, diminutive of flamma, both from pre-Latin *fladma; akin to Стари Енглески glēd (ember); ultimately from Пра-Индо-Европски *bʰlē- (to shimmer, gleam, shine).
