Etymology of chimney

Origin of chimney.
Chimney derives from the old French cheminee (fire place), from the late Latin (camera) caminata (fireplace, room with a fireplace) from the Latin caminatus, from caminus (hearth, oven, flue), which is a transliteration of the Greek caminos (furnace; κάμινος)


From the same root:

French: chiminee.

Italian: camino, camineto.

Spanish: chimenea, cheminea.

German: Kamin

In modern Greek (Romeika, the language of Romei/Romans/Ρωμηοί)

c) caminada: chimney [καμινάδα]
