Origin of daughter

The word daughter comes from the old German dhukter, which derives from the Greek thygater (daughter; θυγάτηρ) by chanching theta (Θ) into D.

In German: Tochter

In Swedish: dotter


In modern Greek (Romeika – the language of Romei-Romans)
a) thygatera: daughter [θυγατέρα]


Η λέξη daughter (θυγατέρα, κόρη) προέρχεται από το παλαιό Γερμανικό dhukter, το οποίο με τη σειρά του προέρχεται από το ελληνικό θυγάτηρ.
