- daughter: [OE] Daughter is an ancient word which goes back to Indo-European *dhughə tēr. Apart from Latin and the Romance languages (with filia and its descendants) and Celtic (Welsh has merch), all the Indo-European languages have inherited this form: Greek had thugátēr, Armenian dustr, Old Slavic dusti (whence Russian doch’), and Sanskrit duhitar-.
The prehistoric Germanic word was *dohtēr, which produced Gothic dauhtar, German tochter, Dutch dochter, Swedish dotter, Danish datter, and of course English daughter. It is not known where the Indo-European word ultimately came from, although correspondences have been suggested with Sanskrit duh- ‘milk’ and Greek teúkho ‘make’.
