Etymology[edit]

From Polish hetman, probably from Middle High German houbetman, heuptman (commander), from houbet, heupt (head), related to Latin caput (head), + Middle High German man (man). Compare modern German Hauptmann (captain), Haupt, Mann. The Polish e in hetman attests to a borrowing from an East Central German dialect, where Middle High German öu gives ē.

Noun[edit]

  1. (history) A Cossack headman or general.
