Etymology[edit]

From Middle English ingot ‎(something poured in), from Old English *ingot, ingyte ‎(a pouring in, infusion, inspiration), from Proto-Germanic *in ‎(in) + *gutaz, *gutiz ‎(gush, flow), from Proto-Germanic *geutaną ‎(to flow, pour), from Proto-Indo-European *ǵʰew- ‎(to pour), equivalent to in- +‎ gote or in- +‎ yote. Cognate with German Einguss ‎(in-pouring, sprue), Swedish ingjut ‎(in-pouring), Dutch ingieten ‎(to pour in), Scots gote ‎(drain, ditch, gutter), Swedish göt ‎(ingot). More at gote, goit, yote.

Alternative etymology derives Middle English ingot from ingoten ‎(poured in), from Old English ingoten, past participle of inġēotan ‎(to pour in, fill), from the same Proto-Germanic base as above.
