Frogs, Hearts and Eggs

http://www.insidescience.org/content/geneticists-estimate-publication-date-iliad/946

    Old English for Frog was 'Frogga.'  The English for 'egg'  comes from the Old Norse word 'egg.'  And the word heart comes from the Old English word 'heorte.' 

     All the same I am really happy we who speak English almost daily don't have to use the words "Frogga" or "Heorte" in order to be understood.
