Origin of wode

  • Middle English, from Old English wōd (“mad, raging, enraged, insane, senseless, blasphemous”), from Proto-Germanic *wōdaz, from Proto-Indo-European *wāt- (“prophet”). Cognate with Middle Dutch woet (Dutch woede), Old High German wuot (German Wut (“fury”)), Old Norse óðr, Gothic (wōþs, “demonically possessed”). The Indo-European root is also the source of Latin vates (“seer, prophet”), Old Irish fáith (“seer”), Welsh gwawd (“song”).
