EtymologyModificar

Middle French laquais, which is probably (via Patrono:Pro[[Category:Patrono:Pro derivations|Lackey]] [[lacai#Patrono:Pro|lacai]]?) from Spanish lacayo, itself perhaps from Italian lacchè and Patrono:El[[Category:Patrono:El derivations|Lackey]] λακές (lakés), from Turkish ulak. Another possibility is through French from Catalan alacay, from Arabic القاضي (al-qāḍi), magistrate).
