- booth (n.) mid-12c., from O.Dan. boþ "temporary dwelling," from E.Norse *boa "to dwell," from P.Gmc. *bowan-, from PIE root *bheue- "to be, exist, grow" (see BE (Cf. be)). See also BOUND (Cf. bound) (adj.2). Cf. Ger. Bude "booth, stall," M.Du. boode, Lith. butas "house," O.Ir both "hut," Boh. bouda, Pol. buda, some probably borrowed from E.Norse, some formed from the PIE root.
