possible root from the French verb "mourir" meaning to die. The English word "mortgage" refers a home owner's loan that is usually with you until you die. Usage of the French root is supposed to make it sound fancier than "loan" - but it doesn't really.
J'ai mort - meaning "I am dead"
I have a mortgage - meaning "My social life is dead b/c I own a house"
