- scone:  The word scone first appeared in Scottish English, and does not seem to have made any significant headway south of the border until the 19th century (helped on its way, no doubt, by that great proselytizer of Scottish vocabulary, Sir Walter Scott). It was borrowed from Dutch schoonbrood ‘fine white bread’, a compound formed from schoon ‘beautiful, bright, white’ (first cousin to German schön ‘beautiful’ and related to English sheen and show) and brood ‘bread’.
=> sheen, show
- scone (n.)
- "thin, flat soft cake," 1510s, Scottish, probably shortened from Dutch schoon brood "fine bread," from Middle Dutch schoonbroot, from schoon, scone "bright, beautiful" (see sheen) + broot (see bread (n.)).
