Easter – English and German

Main article: Eostre

The modern English term Easter developed from the Old English word Eastre or Eostre (IPA: [‘ae:astre, ‘e:ostre]), which itself developed prior to 899. The name refers to Eostur-monath (Old English “Eostre month”), a month of the Germanic calendar attested by Bede, who writes that the month is named after the goddess Eostre of Anglo-Saxon paganism. [8] Bede notes that Eostur-monath was the equivalent to the month of April, yet that feasts held in her honor during Eostur-monath had gone out of use by the time of his writing and had been replaced with the Christian custom of the “Paschal season”. The feast was also historically referred to in English as “Pash” or “Pace”, [9] [10] from the Latin pascha (see below).

Using comparative linguistic evidence from continental Germanic sources, the 19th century scholar Jacob Grimm proposed the existence of a cognate form of Eostre among the pre-Christian beliefs of the continental Germanic peoples, whose name he reconstructed as *Ostara.

Since Grimm’s time, linguists have identified the goddess as a Germanic form of the reconstructed Proto-Indo-European goddess of the dawn, *Hausos and theories connecting Eostre with records of Germanic Easter customs (including hares and eggs) have been proposed.

Modern German features the cognate term Ostern, but otherwise, Germanic languages generally use the non-native term pascha for the event.
