词源(Etymology)

From Middle English bewty, bewte, beaute, bealte, from Anglo-Norman and Old French beauté (early Old French spelling biauté), from Vulgar Latin *bellitās (beauty), from Latin bellus (beautiful, fair); see beau. In this sense, mostly displaced native Old English fæġernes, whence Modern English fairness.
