User comments for Jewel (Meaning / History Only)

Also means "Joy" although I can't remember where that meaning comes from.

The modern French word for "jewel" is "bijou" and the English word is related to it by way of "juel", which most likely came from the Latin "jocale" and/or "jocus", meaning "pastime, sport," or "a thing which causes joy".

Might also originate from the English word "Jewel" which is derived from Jewelry. Like, precious stones and stuff.
