English[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

From Middle English hod, had, hed, from Old English hād (person, individual, character, individuality, degree, rank, order, office, holy office, condition, state, nature, character, form, manner, sex, race, family, tribe, choir), from Proto-Germanic *haiduz (appearance, kind), from Proto-Indo-European *(s)kāi- (light, bright, shining). Cognate with Old Saxon hēd (condition, rank), Old High German heit (person, personality, sex, condition, quality, rank), Old Norse heiðr ("honour, dignity") (whence Danish hæder (honour), Swedish heder (honour)), Gothic 𐌷𐌰𐌹𐌳𐌿𐍃 (haidus, way, manner). Same as -hood. (Can this(+) etymology be sourced?)
