Quite interestingly, the term is derived from the French word 'ottomane', which is the feminine version of ottoman. The word could have also been derived from the Italian 'Ottomano', Medieval Latin 'Ottomanus', Medieval Greek 'Othomanoia', from Arabic 'Utmani'. Ottoman was also the name of an empire of the late 16th century.
