Etymology : grool: great + cool; great: (adj) meaning Old English "great" "big, tall, thick, stout; coarse," from West Germanic "grautaz" meaning "coarse, thick." Originally meant "big in size, coarse," and, if so, perhaps from Proto-Indo-European root "ghreu-" meaning to "rub, grind." cool (adj) meaning "not warm" "col" from Old English, also, of persons, "unperturbed, undemonstrative," from Proto-Germanic "koluz" from Proto Indo-European root "gel- "cold, to freeze." also used as "fashionable" in 1933, used from 1940s as general term of approval.
