Remarks 'rode', i.e., 'red' from Germanic 'rauthaz' (German 'rot', Dutch 'rood', Swedish 'röd', Danish 'rød') from Latin 'ruber, rubeus, russus, rufus' from Greek 'eruthrós' from Indo-European 'reudh-' (p. 435 in Ref. 11979); 'salmon' from Latin 'salmo, -onis' linked to 'salire', i.e., to jump and hence, the leaping fish (p. 454 in Ref. 11979).
