- outrage:  Outrage has no etymological connection with either out or rage. It comes via Old French outrage from Vulgar Latin *ultrāticum ‘excess’, a noun derived from the Latin preposition ultrā ‘beyond’. This of course has given English the prefix ultra-, and it is also the source of French outré ‘eccentric’, borrowed by English in the 18th century.
=> outré, ultra
