Etymology[edit]

From *vota ([vuota]) with loss of initial v (like ola (egg), q.v.), from *wuo-, from Proto-Baltic *wan-, from Proto-Indo-European *won-, *wen-, *wā- (to hit). The original meaning was apparently “(something) for hitting,” at some point used to refer to the birch brooms used to hit oneself in steam baths, and then to all brooms. In the 1920s its use was restricted to the modern sense of “paintbrush.” Cognates include Lithuanian vánta (broom for hitting oneself in steam baths).[1]
