From Middle English blenden, either from Old English blandan, blondan, ġeblandan, ġeblendan[1] or from Old Norse blanda (to blend, mix)[2] (which was originally a strong verb with the present-tense stem blend[3]; compare blendingr (a blending, a mixture; a half-breed)[4]), whence also Danish blande, or from a blend of the Old English and Old Norse terms; both ultimately from Proto-Germanic *blandaną (to blend; mix; combine).[5] Compare Middle Dutch blanden (to mix), Gothic 𐌱𐌻𐌰𐌽𐌳𐌰𐌽 (blandan), Old Church Slavonic блєсти (blesti, to go astray).
