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

  • From Middle English *hasi, from Old English haswiġ (“grey”), from Old English hasu (“dusky, grey, ashen”), from Proto-Germanic *haswaz (“grey”), from Proto-Indo-European *ḱas(w)- (“bright grey”), equivalent to haze +‎ -y; although Modern English haze is more likely a back-formation of hazy.
