From Proto-Baltic *deš-, from Proto-Indo-European *deḱ- (to cut, to sever, to split into fibers). A minority opinion derives desa from a different stem *deḱ- (to remove, to take out). Cognates include Lithuanian dešrà, dialectal dešerà, Gothic 𐍄𐌰𐌲𐌻 (tagl, hair), Old Norse tagl (horsehair), Old High German zagal (tail, rod), Old English tægl, tægel (tail), English tail, Sanskrit देशा (deśā, fringe of cloth; lamp wick).[1]
