EtymologyEdit

From Middle Dutch huwe, related to Old Dutch hiuuisci (family, lineage), from Proto-Germanic *hīwōn- (married couple). Compare German Heirat (marriage) and Old English hīwisc (household), from related Proto-Germanic *hīwa-. Kroonen[1] relates this to Proto-Germanic *haimaz (home, house, village) from Proto-Indo-European *ḱey- (to cultivate, settle), compare Latin cīvis, from imperfective Proto-Indo-European *tḱey-.
