bath (n.)

古英语 bæð “将身体浸泡在水, 泥浆等中”, 也有“一定量的水等用于沐浴” 的意思, 来自于古日耳曼语 *badan (也是古弗里斯兰语 beth, 古撒克逊语 bath, 古北欧语 bað, 中荷兰语 bat, 德语 Bad), 来自于PIE根 *bhē- “温暖” + *-thuz, 日耳曼语后缀表示“行为, 过程, 条件” (如 birth, death). 词源意义是指加热, 而不是浸泡.

英国萨默塞特的城市(古英语 Baðun) 因其温泉而得名. Bath salts 见证于1875年(朱利叶斯-布劳恩博士, 《论浴池和水的治疗效果》). Bath-house 是1705年的; bath-towel 是1958年的.
