Origin of hutch

  • Middle English huche chest from Old French from Medieval Latin hūtica possibly of Germanic origin

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

  • Middle English hucche (“storage chest”), variation of Middle English whucce from Old English hwicce, hwice "box, chest". Spelling influenced by Old French huche (“chest”), from Medieval Latin hūtica, from a different Germanic root, from Frankish *hutta, from Proto-Germanic *hudjā-, *hudjan- (“box, hut, hutch”). Akin to Old English hȳdan "to conceal, hide". More at hide
