EtymologyEdit

From Middle High German stube, from Old High German stuba, from Proto-Germanic *stubō (room, sitting room, oven), possibly from Vulgar Latin *extūfa, *extūfāre (to heat with steam), from Latin ex- + *tūfus (hot vapor), from Ancient Greek τῦφος (tûphos, fever).[1]

Cognate with German Low German Stuäwe (dative Stuäwe, Stuäwen, plural Stuäwen), Stuowe (dative Stuowen) (Paderbornisch), Dutch stoof, East Central German schduub (Erzgebirgisch). See stove for more.
