I would like to know where the word moolah comes from.


Answer by  Clement (1453)

The origin of this word seems to be unknown, although it has been recorded in the American slang already in the 1920s. One plausible explanation links moolah to mules (Mula is mule in Spanish, pronounced Moolah), while mules are (were) important monetary equivalent in Latin America.
