Etymology[edit]

From Middle Low German *hīsen, hissen, hiscen, hitzen. The same in Dutch hijsen, Middle English hissa! (a cry used by sailors in pulling or hauling; > English heeze), Middle High German hetzen (to rush, drive, hunt). Further origin uncertain, but possibly related to Proto-West Germanic *hattjan, from Proto-Germanic *hatjaną (to hunt down, pursue, persecute, attack). Or, possibly imitative.

Compare also English hoise, hoist, Danish hejse and hisse, Norwegian heise, French hisser, Italian issare, Sicilian jisari (all borrowed from either Dutch or Low German).
