An oval is a closed curve in a plane which "loosely" resembles the outline of an egg. The term is not very specific, but in some areas it is given a more precise definition. In common English, the term is used in a broader sense; any shape which reminds one of an egg. The 3-dimensional version of an oval is called an ovoid.
Chambers 20th Century Dictionary
ō′val, adj. having the shape of an egg.—n. anything oval, a plot of ground, &c.: an ellipse.—adv. O′vally. [Fr. ovale—L. ovum, an egg.]
