The name "Namur" (or "namoer") is of Celtic origin. It comes from the root "nem", meaning 'to flow', and an obscure element, possibly bre or ore, which has been linked to the Latin word nemus ('grove'). The same etymology applies to the town's name in French ("Namur"), where it is pronounced . Inhabitants of Namur are known as Namurois. The city was called by different names throughout its history: Nanmuda (in 845), Nantumarus (10th century), Mafra ([11th century]), Naumara/Naumera ([12th–13th centuries]), and Namuretum (). The form Nammura was also used for a short time.
