    Just to inform you that this "name" comes from catalan language, not french.
    Are you saying that English got it not from French but from Catalan? or are you saying that the word is originally Catalan? If the later, do you know when it was used first in Catalan (in order to compare it with French)? If you didn't have this info, could you quote, at least, sources backing a Catalan origin?
