gold-blóma
Add: A gold-bloom (v. N. E. D.), marigold(?). In favour of the meaning 'golden mass' it may be noted that blóma is not found in A. S. with the sense 'bloom', 'blossom'; and the occurrence of hordfæte and gewelegade in the passage seems to suggest that with goldblóma is connected the idea of 'wealth', 'treasure'. In favour of 'marigold' it may be said that both O. Sax. and O. H. Ger., as well as Goth. and Icel., have forms meaning 'bloom' corresponding to A. S. blóma, and the actual compound, golth-blómo = amellus occurs in O. L. Ger. (Gall. 117). Cf. too Du. goud-bloem: Ger. gold-blume: Swed. guld-blomma marigold Críst se goldblóma, Bl. H. 105, 5. Se goldblóma on ðás weoruld becóm ... þurh þone tócyme wé wǽron geweorðade and gewelegade and geárode, Wlfst. 251, 11-17. (It is the same homily in Bl. H. and Wlfst.) See next word.
