Origin of lout

Of dialectal origin, compare Middle English louten "to bow, bend low, stoop over" from Old English lÅ«tan from Proto-Germanic *leut-. Cognate with Old Norse lútr (“stooping"), Gothic 𐌻𐌿𐍄𐌾𐌽 (luton, “to deceive"). Non-Germanic cognates are probably Old Church Slavonic лоудити (luditi, “to deceive") , Serbo-Croatian луд (lud) and Albanian lut (“to beg, pray").
