Late 17th century: from Latin, literally 'sheath, scabbard', which is also the source of the word vanilla.
vanilla from mid 17th century:
This word for a flavouring is from Spanish vainilla ‘pod’, a diminutive of vaina ‘sheath, pod’, from Latin vagina ‘sheath’, also source of vagina (late 17th century). The spelling change was due to association with French vanille. Since the 1970s the word has been used to mean ‘plain, basic, conventional’ from the popular perception of vanilla as the basic or usual flavour of ice-cream.
