Probably from Frankish rut, furrow, track, from Proto-Germanic *lisō, *laistiz, *laista-, *laisō ‎(track, trace), from Proto-Indo-European *leyəs- ‎(furrow, track), related to Old High German lesa ‎(wrinkle, line), Old English lāst ‎(footstep, track, trace), Gothic 𐌻𐌰𐌹𐍃𐍄𐍃 ‎(laists, track, trace). Possibly influenced by Frankish border, edge, see liste, last.
