hive
hive: [OE] Hive comes ultimately from Indo- European *keup-, which denoted ‘round container, bowl’ and also produced Greek kúpellon ‘drinking vessel’, Latin cūpa ‘barrel’ (source of English coop, cooper, and cupola), and its post-classical offshoot cuppa (whence English cup). (A variant of the Indo-European base was the source of English head.) The Germanic descendant of *keup- was *khūf-, from which came Old Norse húfr ‘ship’s hull’ and English hive.
=> coop, cooper, cupola, cup, head
