The word ‘beauty‘ came into English from Old French biauté, which, in turn, comes from Vulgar Latin bellitas. The suffix ‘-ful’ comes from the word ‘full’, which is of Germanic origin, similar to -voll in German, -vol in Dutch, and -fuld in Danish. As a result, the word is a mix of Romance and Germanic origins.
