From Proto-Italic *teksō, perhaps from either Proto-Indo-European *tḗtḱ-ti or from *teḱ-se-ti, both from *teḱ- (to beget, produce), or from *tek- (to weave), which may or may not be the same root. Cognates include Sanskrit तक्षति (takṣati), Avestan 𐬙𐬀𐬱𐬀𐬌𐬙𐬌(tašaiti), Proto-Germanic *þahsuz, Ancient Greek τίκτω (tíktō), τέκτων (téktōn), τέχνη (tékhnē).
