From Middle English tryst, trist, a variant (due to the Old Norse verb treysta (“to make safe, secure")) of trust, trost, from Old Norse traust (“confidence, trust, security, help, shelter, safe abode"), from Proto-Germanic *traustÄ… (“trust, shelter"), from Proto-Indo-European *deru-, *dreu-, *drÅ«- (“to be firm, be solid"). More at trust.
