From Anglo-Norman and Old French marbre, from Latin marmor, from Ancient Greek μάρμαρος (perhaps related to μαρμάρεος ‘gleaming’). Much of the early classical marble came from the 'Marmaris' sea above the Aegean. The forms from French replaced Old English marma, which had already been borrowed directly from the Latin.
