Origin & History of “urine”

Urine comes via Old French urine from Latin ūrīna, which may be related to Greek oū́ron ‘urine’ (source of English urea (19th c.), ureter (16th c.), urethra (17th c.), and uric (18th c.)) and Sanskrit varsa- ‘rain’. Urinal (13th c.) comes from the late Latin derivative ūrīnālis.
