- manger:  Etymologically, a manger is an ‘eater’, or ‘feeding place’. It comes from Old French mangeoire, a descendant of Vulgar Latin *mandūcātōria. This was derived from Latin mandūcāre ‘chew’, which in modern French has become manger ‘eat’; the use of this as a noun, meaning ‘edible substance’, forms the ultimate basis of English blancmange, literally ‘white food’. From a parallel source comes the name of the skin disease mange , an allusion to its ‘eating’ or irritating the skin; mangy is a 16thcentury derivative.
=> blancmange, mange
