Etymology

From Middle English boot, bot, boet, boyt (boat), from Old English {{ang|bāt||boat}}, from Proto-Germanic {{gem-pro|*baitaz}}, {{gem-pro|*baitą||boat, small ship}}, from Proto-Indo-European {{ine-pro|*bʰeyd-||to break, split}}. Cognate with Old Norse beit (boat).

Old Norse bātr (whence [[bátur#|bátur]], [[båt#|båt]]), [[boot#|boot]], [[Boot#|Boot]], Occitan batèl and [[bateau#|bateau]] are all ultimately borrowings from the Old English word.
