- \ \  Haemorrhage means literally a ‘bursting forth of blood’. It comes ultimately from Greek haimorrhagíā, a compound formed from Greek haima ‘blood’ and an element derived from the same source as the verb rhēgnúnai ‘break, burst’. Haima, a word of unknown origin, has been a generous contributor to English vocabulary. Besides haemorrhage, it has given haematite , literally ‘blood-like stone’, a type of iron ore, haemoglobin , a shortening of an earlier haemoglobulin, haemorrhoid  (in the 16th and 17th centuries spelled emerod), literally ‘flowing with blood’, and many more.
