Etymology[edit]

From German Steppe or French steppe, in turn from Russian степь (stepʹ, flat grassy plain) or Ukrainian степ (step). There is no generally accepted earlier etymology, but there is a speculative Old East Slavic reconstruction *сътепь (sŭtepĭ, trampled place, flat, bare), related to топот (topot), топтать (toptatĭ). Used in Swedish since 1817.
