Akin to Old English cwild (downfall, death), cwyldtīd (evening), Old High German quiltiwerc (evening work), dialectal German Kilt. Originally literally “the quelling [of day]”, and exists also in the form kveld dags, usually with the preposition at: at kveldi dags (originally literally “at the end or quelling of the day”, hence “in the evening”). Related to kvelja, Old English cweljan, English quell, kill.
