- rob:  Rob goes back ultimately to a prehistoric Germanic *raub- ‘break’ (a close relative of the Latin base rup- ‘break’, which has given English rout, route, and rupture). This produced Old English rēafian ‘rob’, which although it has now died out has left us its derivative bereave [OE], and also Middle Dutch rōven ‘rob’, which gave English rover ‘pirate’ . It was also borrowed into Old French as robber, which is the source of modern English rob. Other English descendants of the Germanic base are robe, rubbish, and rubble.
