Origin of Window
From Middle English windowe, windohe, windoge, from Old Norse vindauga (“window", literally “wind-eye", "wind-aperture", "wind-hole"), equivalent to wind +"Ž eye. Cognate with Scots wyndo, wyndok, winnock (“window"), Icelandic vindauga (“window"), Norwegian vindauga, vindu (“window"), Danish vindue (“window"), old German Windauge. The “windows" in these times were just unglazed holes (eyes) in the wall or roof that permitted wind to pass through.
