The Origins of the Word “God”.

gautama

The earliest written form of the Germanic word God (always, in this usage, capitalized[17]) comes from the 6th-century ChristianCodex Argenteus. The English word itself is derived from the Proto-Germanic * ǥuđan. The reconstructed Proto-Indo-European form* ǵhu-tó-m was likely based on the root * ǵhau(ə)-, which meant either “to call” or “to invoke”.[18]
