Etymology

From Middle English welth, welthe, weolthe (happiness, prosperity), from Old English {{ang|*welþ}}, {{ang|*weleþu}}, from Proto-Germanic {{gem-pro|*waliþō||wealth}}.

Cognate with [[weelde#|weelde]] (wealth), {{ Template:Nds/script |[[weelde#|weelde]]|face=term|lang=nds}} (wealth), Old High German welida, welitha (wealth). Related also to [[Wohl#|Wohl]] (welfare, well-being, weal), [[vel#|vel]] (weal, welfare), [[väl#|väl]] (well-being, weal). More at [[weal#|weal]], [[well#|well]].
