Where did French originate from?
French is a romance language. Therefore it can trace most of its words back to Latin. However, the French empire was very, very large. France had colonies across Africa and the Middle East, along with North America for a brief period. Some French words are therefore of Arabic origin. In short, Latin and Arabic.

In French Fries
It comes from the "steak-frites" (beef steak and fried) lunch meal, which is, or rather was, one of the most frequent in restaurants for a quick lunch. Fries were thus deemed …to be a staple French food for Americans, hence the expression "French fries" instead of the British "chips". It should probably have been "Belgian Fries", since fries were even more widespread in Belgium than in France, with the "moules-frites" dish (mussels and fries), but American tourists are less familiar with Belgium.
