Dutch[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Middle Dutch guyte, probably from ghoiten (to berate), gu(i)ten (to make fun of), possibly from Old Norse gautan (drivel), gauta (to talk a lot), connected with Old High German gauzen, gäuzen (to namecall), all ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *ǵʰeh₂w- (to yawn, gape).

Also compared is Norwegian gutt (boy), but this could be a reverse borrowing.
