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