- From Middle English grom, grome ("man-child, boy, youth"), of uncertain origin. Apparently related to Middle Dutch grom ("boy"), Old Icelandic grómr, gromr ("man, manservant, boy"), Old French gromme ("manservant"), from the same Germanic root. Possibly from Old English *grōma, from Proto-Germanic *grōmô, related to *grōanan (“to grow”), though uncertain as *grōanan was used typically of plants; its secondary meaning being "to turn green".
