    Surely it's 'grimme' if it's French, no? Is it universally known and perhaps used, is what would be interesting to know.

    grime (n.)
    1580s, of uncertain origin, probably alteration of Middle English grim "dirt, filth" (early 14c.), from Middle Low German greme "dirt" or another Low German source, from Proto-Germanic *grim- "to smear" (source also of Flemish grijm, Middle Dutch grime "soot, mask"), from PIE root *ghrei- "to rub." The verb was Middle English grymen (mid-15c.) but largely was replaced early 16c. by begrime.

    The Persian translation of the French 'grime' (from grimer) is dudé/دوده - soot.
