Pumpkin in Persian

kadu-qelqeli the diminutive (suffix –kin) of "pumpion," borrowed from French "pompon" from Late Latin pepon "watermelon, gourd," a word borrowed from Greek pepon "ripe, melon." French pompon remained but acquired the meaning "pompom." Dutch pompoen "pumpkin" is related as is the Russian verb pech' "to bake." They all go back to a Proto-Indo-European root *pekw- which meant "to cook" or "to ripen." In English. the original "pompon" underwent several changes: first to "pompeon" then "pumpion." Next it acquired the diminutive suffix –kin to become "pumpkin." The old diminutive suffix may also be seen in "napkin," "lambkin," "munchkin."kadu(-qelqeli !)
