Pesco- is still a weird element. The linking vowel screams "Greek" but the rest of the word appears modeled on Romance terms like Italian pesce or Spanish pescado.

I was half-joking. While researching "pescatarian", I stumbled across "flexitarian" as a term for "one who is usually or primarily vegetarian, but not strictly so". I'm primarily pescatarian but not strictly so. (A more accurate term for my diet is just "low-meat".)
