Etymology 2[edit]

Attested at least since 1760s. From German Kontor, from Middle Low German kontôr, komtôr, komptor (commercial branch; writing room; counting desk/table), from Middle Dutch contoor, contoir, comptoir, from Middle French contoir, comtoir, comptoir, from conter, compter (to count) + -oir (instrument sufffix), from Latin computāre and -tōrium. Doublet of kontuar.

Brückner suggests that A instead of O in the first syllable may have been influenced by the paronymical attraction to kantyny, but cf. Dutch kantoor, Middle Low German kantôr.
