From French bigot (“a bigot, hypocrite”), from Middle French bigot, from Old French bigot, originally a derogatory term applied to Normans for their frequent note of the Old English oath bī god (“by God”). It is not known, however, whether the precise Germanic language of origin is English: compare Middle High German bī got, Middle Dutch bi gode.
