Origin of eath

  • From Middle English ethe (“not difficult, easy”), from Old English ēaþe, īeþe (“easy, smooth, not difficult”), from Proto-Germanic *auþijaz (“easy, pleasing”), from *auþiz (“deserted, empty”), from Proto-Indo-European *aut- (“empty, lonely”). Cognate with Scots eith (“easy”), Old Saxon ōþi (“deserted, empty”), Old High German ōdi (“empty, abandoned, easy, effortless”), Middle High German öde (German öde, “blank, vacant, easy”), Old Norse auðr (“deserted, empty”), Icelandic auð (“easy”), Gothic (auþeis, “desolate, deserted”). Non-Germanic cognates include Albanian vetëm (“alone”) from vet (“his/her/their own, self”). More at easy.
