Origin of hade

  • Origin unknown

    From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition

  • From Middle English had, hed, hod, from Old English hād (“person, individual, character, individuality, degree, rank, order, office, holy office, condition, state, nature, character, form, manner, sex, race, family, tribe, choir”), from Proto-Germanic *haiduz (“appearance, kind”), from Proto-Indo-European *(s)kāi- (“light, bright, shining”). Cognate with Old Saxon hēd (“consition, rank”), Old High German heit (“person, personality, sex, condition, quality, rank”), Old Norse heiðr ("honour, dignity") (whence Danish hæder (“honour”), Swedish heder (“honour”)), Gothic [script?] (haidus, “way, manner”). Same as -hood.
