Etymology[edit]

From Old Danish aftæn, from Old Norse aptann, from Proto-Germanic *aftanaz, *aftunaz. Cognate with Swedish afton and Norwegian Nynorsk aftan. The West Germanic forms English even, Dutch avond, and German Abend go back to a different form: *ēbanþs. The relation between the two forms is unclear.
