- remain:  Latin manēre meant ‘stay’ (it has given English manor, mansion, permanent , etc). Combination with the prefix re- ‘back, in place’ produced remanēre ‘stay behind, remain’, which passed into English via Old French remanoir. Its present participle gave English remnant . A variant of remanoir was remaindre, which is the source of English remainder .
=> manor, mansion, permanent, remnant
