Origin of Bond
From Middle English bonde (“peasant, servant, bondman”), from Old English bōnda, būnda (“householder, freeman, plebeian, husband”), perhaps from Old Norse bóndi (“husbandman, householder”), or as a contraction of Old English būend (“dweller, inhabitant”). Both Old English & Old Norse, from Proto-Germanic *būwandz (“dweller”), from Proto-Indo-European *bʰeu- (“to swell, grow”). See also bower, boor.
From Middle English bond, variant of band, from Old English beand, bænd, bend (“bond, chain, fetter, band, ribbon, ornament, chaplet, crown”), from Proto-Germanic *bandaz, *bandiz (“band, fetter”), from Proto-Indo-European *bʰendʰ- (“to tie, bind”). Cognate with Dutch band, German Band, Swedish band. Related to bind.
Middle English variant of band from Old Norse bhendh- in Indo-European roots
