“beautiful, handsome,” c.1400, probably from Old English cymlic “lovely, splendid, finely made,” from cyme “exquisite, glorious, delicate,” from West Germanic *kumi- “delicate, feeble” (cf. Old High German chumo “with difficulty,” chumig “weak, delicate;” German kaum “hardly, scarcely”). Or perhaps the modern word is from Middle English bicumelic (c.1200) “suitable, exquisite,” literally “becomely” (cf. becoming).
