English - Etymology

From Middle English _husbonde_, from Old English _hūsbonda_, _hūsbunda_ (“male head of a household, householder, master of a house”), probably from Old Norse _húsbóndi_ (“master of house”), from _hús_ (“house”) + _bóndi_ (“dweller, householder”), equivalent to _house_ +‎ _bond_ (“serf, slave", originally, "dweller”). _Bond_ in turn represents a formation derived from the present participle of WestScand. _búa_, EastScand. _bôa_ = to build, plow; cf. German _bauen, der Bauende_. Cognate with Icelandic _húsbóndi_ (“head of household”), Faroese _húsbóndi_ (“husband”), Norwegian _husbond_ (“head of household, husband”), Swedish _husbonde_ (“master”), Danish _husbonde_ (“husband”).
