Remarks 'cod', of obscure origins, maybe from Old English 'cod', i.e., pouch, applied to fish because of its 'baglike' appearance (p. 122, Ref. 11979); 'moray' from Latin 'muraena' and Greek 'myraina', i.e., a fish of which the ancients were very fond. Also Ref. 1371, 56807, 83882, 90062, 93840, 95632, 115257, 118272. Also Ref. 118272.
