Etymology 1Edit

From Middle English dadd, dadde, of uncertain origin. Possibly related to Low German detta (grandfather).[1] Possibly from a metathetic variation of unrecorded Old English *ætta, *atta (father), from Proto-Germanic *attô ("father, forefather"; whence also North Frisian ate, aatj, taatje, tääte (father; dad), Cimbrian tatta (dad)), from Proto-Indo-European *átta (father), whence Sanskrit तत (tata, father); or perhaps of Celtic origin, compare Welsh and Breton tad, Old Irish data; and possibly related to Russian дя́дя (djádja, uncle) and/or Russian де́душка (déduška, grandfather).
