morning from Middle English:
In Old English the word for the beginning of the day was morgen, which survives in the literary words morn and morrow. In the Middle Ages morn was extended to morning on the model of evening ( see even). Excessive drinking has resulted in the morning after (more fully the morning after the night before) since the late 19th century.
