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.
