Etymology 1

From Middle English putten, puten, poten, from Old English putian, *pūtian (“to push, put out”; attested by derivative putung (pushing, impulse, instigation, urging)) and potian (to push, thrust, strike, butt, goad), both from Proto-Germanic *putōną (to stick, stab), which is of uncertain origin. Possibly from Proto-Indo-European *bud- (to shoot, sprout), which would make it cognate with Sanskrit बुन्द (bundá, arrow), Lithuanian budė, and budis (mushroom, fungus). Compare also related Old English pȳtan (to push, poke, thrust, put out (the eyes)). Cognate with Dutch poten (to set, plant), Danish putte (to put), Swedish putta, pötta, potta (to strike, knock, push gently, shove, put away), Norwegian putte (to set, put), Norwegian pota (to poke), Icelandic pota (to poke), Dutch peuteren (to pick, poke around, dig, fiddle with).
