Note
"In the Scandinavian languages a great diversity of gender suggests that the word is borrowed from Middle Low German; the Middle English may have had a similar origin, but the parallelism of English sallow, Scots sauch, < Old English sealh, Anglian salh, suggests for English tallow, Scots tauch, an Old English *tealh, *talh, = Old Low German *talg, talh. Ulterior etymology unknown" (OED, 1910).
