    Etymologie

    [ 'krä-ch&t ] (noun.) 14th century. From Old French crochet (‘small hook’), from croc (with diminutive suffix -et), from Old Norse krókr (‘hook’). The musical note was named so because of a small hook on its stem in black notation (in modern notation this hook is on the quaver/eighth note).
