EtymologyEdit

Probably an alteration of earlier ofþe (or), from Proto-Germanic *efþau (or). Cognate with Old Frisian jeftha, joftha (or), Old Saxon eftha, Old High German odo; compare different ablaut-grades in Old English eþþa, Old Norse eða. Ultimately thought to be a Germanic suffixed dual form of the base of if.
