haste
haste: [13] Haste is a Germanic word, but English acquired it through Old French. The furthest back it can be traced is to a prehistoric West Germanic *khaistiz, which produced such now defunct offspring as Old English hǣst ‘violence’ and Old High German heisti ‘powerful’. Its survival is due to its acquisition by Old French as haste, which not only gave English the noun haste, but also contributed a related verb to German (hasten), Dutch (haasten), Swedish (hasta), and English (haste, largely superseded since the 16th century by hasten). The modern French noun is hâte.
haste (n.)
late 13c., "hurrying, haste; celerity, swiftness, speed;" c. 1300, "need for quick action, urgency;" from Old French haste "haste, urgency, hastiness" (12c., Modern French hâte), from Frankish *haifst "violence" or another Germanic source, from Proto-Germanic *haifstiz (cognates: Gothic haifsts "strife," Old English hæste "violent, vehement, impetuous"). From late 14c. as "undue haste, rashness, unwise or unseemly quickness." To make haste "act quickly" is recorded by 1530s.
haste (v.)
late 13c., from Old French haster "hurry, make haste; urge, hurry along" (Modern French hâter), from haste "haste, urgency" (see haste). Now largely superseded by hasten (1560s). Related: Hasted; hasting.
