Etymology[edit]

Various influences, including German heben, Danish hæve and Old Norse hefja (cf. Norwegian Nynorsk hevja). All of these derive from Proto-Germanic *habjaną (to lift heave), whence also English heave, which was borrowed into Norwegian as the doublet hive. Ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *kh₂pyéti, and the root *keh₂p- (to seize).
