- trappings:  Trappings are etymologically ‘drapery’. The word was adapted from Anglo- Norman *trapour, a variant of Old French drapure; and this in turn was a derivative of drap ‘cloth’, source of English drape, drapery, etc. It was originally used in English for an ‘ornamental covering for a horse’, and its more general modern meaning did not emerge until the 16th century.
