Late Middle English (in the sense 'projecting'): from Latin prominent- 'jutting out', from the verb prominere. Compare with eminent.

  • eminent from Late Middle English:

    Eminent ‘outstanding’ and eminence (Middle English) go back to Latin eminere ‘jut, project’. The French expression éminence grise, literally ‘grey eminence’ for someone who has power without an official position, has been used in English since the 1930s. The term was originally used in French of His Eminence the Cardinal Richelieu's grey-cloaked private secretary, Père Joseph (1577–1638). The Latin eminere is also found in pre-eminent (Late Middle English) and prominent (Late Middle English).
