Proto-GermanicEdit

EtymologyEdit

Perhaps from Proto-Indo-European *lewp-, *lewb-, *lewbʰ- (to peel, break off, damage), from Proto-Indo-European *lew- (to cut away, remove, prune). According to Kroonen (2013, 342), from Proto-Indo-European *lubʰ-tu-. This may be linked to Russian луб (lub, bast), Old Prussian lubbo (bast, plank) and therefore have an original meaning of "roof".
