- mead: [OE] Mead goes back ultimately to Indo- European *medhu- which meant ‘sweet drink’ (it was also the source of Greek méthu ‘wine’, from which English gets methyl  and hence methylated spirits ). Its prehistoric Germanic descendant was *meduz, from which come German met, Dutch mede, Swedish mjöd, and Danish mjød as well as English mead.
- mead (n.1)
- "fermented honey drink," Old English medu, from Proto-Germanic *meduz (cognates: Old Norse mjöðr, Danish mjød, Old Frisian and Middle Dutch mede, Old High German metu, German Met "mead"), from PIE root *medhu- "honey, sweet drink" (cognates: Sanskrit madhu "sweet, sweet drink, wine, honey," Greek methy "wine," Old Church Slavonic medu, Lithuanian medus "honey," Old Irish mid, Welsh medd, Breton mez "mead"). Synonymous but unrelated early Middle English meþeglin yielded Chaucer's meeth.
