EtymologyEdit

First attested in the 15th century in Central German ōse, Middle Low German ōse. Since the word is seemingly of northern origin, it may be derived via Old Saxon *ōsi, from Proto-Germanic *ansijō ‎(loop, handle), from Proto-Indo-European *h₂ensehᵃ- ‎(loop, hook, handle). Alternatively, it may be derived from the cognate of German Ohr ‎(ear); compare Öhr ‎(eye of the needle).
