From Middle English compleet (full, complete), borrowed from Old French complet or Latin completus, past participle of compleō (I fill up, I complete) (whence also complement, compliment), from com- + pleō (I fill, I fulfill) (whence also deplete, replete, plenty), ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *pleh₁- (to fill) (English full).
