The term “true” comes from the Old English word “triewe” or “treowe,” which means “faithful,” “trustworthy,” or “reliable.” This is derived from the Proto-Germanic word “*treuwaz,” meaning “having or characterized by good faith,” and the Proto-Indo-European root “*dru-” or “*deru-,” meaning “to be firm, solid, steadfast.” The concept of “true” pertains to something that is in accordance with fact or reality, accurate, or genuine.
