Etymology : 16th century. Latinizing revision of the spelling of Middle English fecond (early 15c.), from Middle French fecond (Old French fecont “fruitful”), from Latin fecundus “fruitful, fertile, productive; rich, abundant,” from *fe-kwondo-, suffixed form (adjectival) of Latin root *fe-, corresponding to PIE *dhe(i)- “to suck, suckle,” also “produce, yield.”
