EtymologyModificar

French camoufler (to veil, disguise), alteration (due to camouflet "to blow smoke in one's face") of Italian camuffare (to muffle the head) from ca- (from Italian capo "head") + muffare (to muffle), from Medieval Latin muffula, muffla (muff), of Patrono:Gem[[Category:Patrono:Gem derivations|Camouflage]] origin, from Patrono:Frk[[Category:Patrono:Frk derivations|Camouflage]] *molfell (soft garment made of hide) from *mol (softened, forworn) (akin to Old High German molawēn "to soften", Patrono:Gmh molwic "soft") + *fell (hide, skin) from Proto-Germanic *fillan (skin, film, fleece) from Proto-Indo-European *pel(e)(w)-, plē(w)- (skin, hide). Akin to Old High German fel (fell, skin, hide), Old English fell (fell, skin, hide). Alternate etymology traces the Italian and Medieval Latin words to Patrono:Gmh[[Category:Patrono:Gmh derivations|Camouflage]] [[mouwe#Patrono:Gmh|mouwe, mōwe]] (sleeve) (German Muff "muff", Dutch mouw "sleeve") from Proto-Germanic *mauvō (sleeve) + fell "skin". More at mulch, fell.
