[ FEW: 16,743a rum; Gdf: 7,266a run 1; GdfC: ; TL: 8,1551 run; DEAF:  run; DMF:  run; TLF: ; OED: ; MED: ; DMLBS: ]

The Middle English equivalent word, derived from the same Germanic etymon but having developed a different sense (‘room in a building’), was also borrowed in Anglo-Norman, cf. roome. The nautical sense, however, is present in romnaile, which is, presumably an (at least partially) English word whose only attestation is in an Anglo-Norman context.
