Hee hee....this word made it all the way to Welsh: tafarn - pub; it's a feminine word in Welsh.

That's a fun little tidbit. It also made it's way into English and became tavern. The joys of etymology.

:o) I figured most people would get the English tavern, but fewer know of the Welsh. I wonder whether the French Tabac is from the Latin or from tobacco.

True. True.

Based on Wiktionary, French tabac is from Spanish tabaco which is where English tobacco come from.
