- basin:  Basin comes via Old French bacin from medieval Latin *bacchinus, a derivative of Vulgar Latin *bacca ‘water vessel’, which may originally have been borrowed from Gaulish. The Old French diminutive bacinet produced English basinet ‘helmet’  and, with a modification of the spelling, bassinette ‘cradle’ , which was originally applied in French to any vaguely basin-shaped object.
=> basinet, bassinette
