Meaning & History

Hypothetical Old High German form of the name of a Germanic goddess of fertility and spring (probably originally of sunrise, whose feast was celebrated at the spring equinox), reconstructed by linguist Jacob Grimm. It derives from Proto-Germanic *Austron, ultimately from *austra- "east, toward the sunrise" (and related to the word east).
