Etymology 1[edit]

From Proto-Indo-European *kel- (to hit, strike) thence also Latvian kalt. From a parallel form of the root Proto-Indo-European *kol- in its reduced grade Proto-Indo-European *kl̥- > Proto-Baltic *kul- whence this term. Cognate with Lithuanian kùlti.[1]

kult intr., 1st conj., pres. kuļu, kul, kuļ, past kūlu

Etymology 2[edit]
