Dutch[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Middle Dutch ette (judge), from Old Dutch *atto, from Proto-West Germanic *attō, from Proto-Germanic *attô (father), from Proto-Indo-European *átta.

In either the Frankish or Old Dutch part of the word's history, the word shifted in meaning from “father” to “judge”, analogous to how in Latin the word patres (fathers) took the additional meaning “senators”.

Cognate with Old High German atto (Middle High German atte, Alemannic German Ätti).
