From Middle High German trappe, possibly a borrowing from Slavic, from Proto-Slavic *dropъty, whose first part is probably from Proto-Indo-European *dreh₂- (“run”) and the other from Proto-Slavic *pъta (“bird”), which is probably based on Proto-Indo-European *put- (“a young, a child, a little animal”).
