From Middle English _dun_, _dunne_, from Old English _dunn_ (“dun, dingy brown, bark-colored, brownish black”), from Proto-Germanic _*dusnaz_ (“brown, yellow”), from Proto-Indo-European _*dhūw-_ (“to smoke, raise dust”). Cognate with Old Saxon _dun_ (“brown, dark”), Old High German _tusin_ (“ash-gray, dull brown, pale yellow, dark”).
