Etymology[edit]

From Middle French huyct, from Old French uit, from Latin octō, from Proto-Indo-European *oḱtṓw.

The h- was added in Middle French to avoid confusion with vit when the letters u and v were not distinguished; compare the same in huile, etc. That huit does not undergo initial liaison is in fact due to a general rule for numerals (compare un, onze), not to a historically aspirated onset.
