Middle English clovere, claver, from Old English clāfre, earlier clǣfre, from Proto-Germanic *klaibrōn (cf. East Frisian kleeuwer, Dutch klaver, Low German dialect Kleeber), enlargement of *klaiwaz (cf. Low German Klief, Kliev, German Klee), from Proto-Indo-European *glei- ‘to stick’ (compare Old Church Slavonic glěvŭ ‘slime’, Ancient Greek gloiós ‘glue, tar’). More at cleave, clay.
