German[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Middle High German helt (genitive heldes), from Old High German helid, from Proto-Germanic *haliþaz (hero), further etymology unknown. Cognate with Old English hæleþ (English health), Old Saxon helið (Dutch held), West Frisian held, Old Norse halr, hǫlðr (Norwegian hold). The Indo-European root is also the source of Ancient Greek κέλωρ (kélōr), Tocharian B kālyśke (boy).
