Origin of mesh

  • Middle English mesch probably from Middle Dutch maesche

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

  • Middle English mesche, from Old English masc (“net") (perhaps influenced in form by related Old English mæscre (“mesh, spot")) both from Proto-Germanic *maskrÇ­, from Proto-Indo-European *mezg- (“to knit, twist, plait"). Akin to Old High German māsca (“mesh"), Old Saxon maska (“net"), Old Norse mÇ«skvi, mÇ«skun (“mesh").
