1650s, from French hutte “cottage” (16c.), from Middle High German hütte “cottage, hut,” probably from Proto-Germanic *hudjon-, related to the root of Old English hydan “to hide,” from PIE *keudh-, from root (s)keu- (see hide (n.1)). Apparently first in English as a military word. Old Saxon hutta, Danish hytte, Swedish hytta, Frisian and Middle Dutch hutte, Dutch hut are from High German.
