EtymologyEdit

Uncertain. Possibly related to Italian puttana (Old Spanish putaña; see putañear), which ultimately derives from Latin putus (pure). María Moliner dictionary (also Joan Coromines[1]) states the most probable origin: from Vulgar Latin putta, variant of puta, female form of puttus, putus (boy). Note that this word appears in all romance languages.
