Etymology 1 edit

From Middle English er, from Old English ǣr (adverb, conjunction, and preposition), from Proto-West Germanic *airi, from Proto-Germanic *airiz, comparative of Proto-Germanic *airi (early), from Proto-Indo-European *h₂éyeri (day, morning) (compare Avestan𐬀𐬫𐬀𐬭(ayar, day), Gk. ἠέριος (ēérios, at daybreak), see also era, Albanian herët (early in the morning, at daybreak) ). The adverb erstwhile retains the Old English superlative ǣrest (earliest). Cognate with Saterland Frisian eer (before), Dutch eer (before, sooner than), German ehe (before).
