My theme for the month is A to Z of words in English with an Arabic origin. A fruit and a colour which gives a fresh and vibrant feeling. Orange ! Orange surely has come a long way !

In Spanish, naranja! So really close to Arabic but I think probably pronounced a bit differently.
It’s interesting to see how words originated. You might enjoy reading Empires of the Word by Nicholas Ostler–dry in spots, but very informative.
Very interesting that it took so many years for it to become a color!
