Etymology 1[edit]

From Proto-Finnic *kato, from Proto-Uralic *kaďa- (to leave). Cognates are found in almost every Uralic language, e.g. Northern Sami guođđit (to leave something, to depart), Skolt Sami kue´đđed (to leave smth), Moksha кадомс (kadoms, to leave), Erzya кадомс (kadoms, to leave), Eastern Mari кодаш (kodaš, to stay), Udmurt кыльыны (kylʹyny, to stay), Hungarian hagy (to let; to leave), Mansi хули (huli, to leave), Selkup [Term?] (/quəčə-/, to leave). Labialization of the stem vowel occurred in Proto-Finnic, compare Estonian kadu (loss).
