The most beautiful word

What’s the most beautiful word of the English language? Votes are accepted now, on this site.

The first that comes to mind, for me, is:

crescent n. 1 the curved shape of the waxing or waning moon. 2 a thing which has the shape of a single curve, especially when broad in the centre and tapering to a point at each end; chiefly Brit. a street or terrace of houses forming an arc. 3 (the Crescent) chiefly historical the political power of Islam or of the Ottoman Empire. (definition from WordReference.com)

I’d be glad to hear about yours!
