Etymology

From Middle English moven, moeven, meven, borrowed from Old Northern French mover, moveir and Old French mouver, moveir (to move) (compare modern French mouvoir from Old French movoir), from Latin movēre, present active infinitive of moveō (move; change, exchange, go in or out, quit), from Proto-Indo-European *mew- (to move, drive). Cognate with Lithuanian mauti (to push on, rush), Sanskrit मीवति (mī́vati, pushes, presses, moves), Middle Dutch mouwe (sleeve). More at muff. Largely displaced native English stir, from Middle English stiren, sturien, from Old English styrian.
