The word Sufi...

Hi all of you,

It is said that the word "Sufi" is a new one.
It is said to have German origin from year 1821.
The book by the author F.A.G. Thöluck is titled: "Ssufismus sive Theosophia Persarum pantheistica" (Berlin 1821) - yes - in latin
The book has a title with the word Theosophy in it, and that is interesting.
As H. P. Blavatsky uses the word "sufi", it could be interesting 
to know in which books she has read that term --- if any reading took placeat all.
Someone says that the word has a distinct sound called 'SSSUUUFFF'.

Do any of you have anything on this ?
