Definitions and meaning of mop



From Middle English mappe (also as mappel), perhaps borrowed from Walloon mappe (napkin), from Latin mappa (napkin, cloth). Believed to be from a Semitic source, variously claimed as Phoenician or Punic (the latter by Quintilian). Compare Modern Hebrew מפה(mapá, a map; a cloth) (shortened from menaphah a fluttering banner, streaming cloth). More at map.
