German[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Middle High German hütte, from Old High German hutta (hut, cottage), possibly from Proto-Germanic *hudjǭ, though the word is originally exclusively High German. Further origin unknown. Some theories link it to Proto-Indo-European *(s)kewt- (to deck; cover; covering; skin). All related words in European languages are borrowings from Old High German. Compare Dutch hut, French hutte, English hut, etc.
