French fries are known as such because thin strips of vegetable are known as julienne in French. Julienne potatoes doesn't exactly roll off of most American tongues, and thus such potatoes were referred to as French-cut. French-cut further devolved into just French, giving us French fried potatoes. Since potatoes were accounting for most all of the French fried products, potatoes was dropped, and fried was morphed into fry.
