Etymology 1

From Middle English dadd, dadde, of uncertain origin. Possibly related to Low German detta ("grandfather").[1] Possibly from a metathetic variation of unrecorded Old English *ætta, *atta ("father"), from Proto-Germanic *attô ("father, forefather"; whence also North Frisian ate, aatj, taatje, tääte ("father; dad"), Cimbrian tatta ("dad")), from Proto-Indo-European *átta ("father"), whence Sanskrit (tata, "father"); or perhaps of Celtic origin, compare Welsh and Breton tad, Old Irish data; and possibly related to Russian (djádja, "uncle") and/or Russian (dédu?ka, "grandfather").
