Fascinating read. I speak both Tamil and Malayalam (South Indian/Dravidian languages), so considering how old Tamil is thought to be (maybe even older than Sanskrit, but that's up for debate), my theory is that the word may have originated in Tamil.

So maybe it is: நாரம் nāram (Tamil) -->  (Telugu) నారింజ nāriṃja --> (Malayalam) നാരങ്ങ‌ nāraŋŋa  --> nāraṅga (Sanskrit) --> (Persian) نارنگ nārang --> (Arabic) نارنج nāranj --> Spanish (naranja) --> (Old French) Pomme d'orenge --> (English) Orange

When you buy an e-book on Amazon, it should show up on your Kindle directory (books or documents, not sure) as a .mobi file. Use a software called Calibre to convert mobi to epub
