Derivatives

blondish

adjective
blondness

noun
Origin:

late 17th century (earlier as blond): from French, feminine of blond, from medieval Latin blundus ‘yellow’, perhaps from Germanic

The alternative spellings blonde and blond correspond to the feminine and masculine forms in French, but in English the distinction is not always made, as English does not have such distinctions of grammatical gender. Thus,
blond woman
or
blonde woman
,
blond man
or
blonde man
are all used. The word is more commonly used of women, though, and in the noun the spelling is typically blonde. In American usage the usual spelling is blond for both adjective and noun.
