The word ‘Easter’ is most likely derived from an old high german word for 'east', which comes from an old latin word for 'dawn'.
As reported by Britannica and Time Magazine, there is widespread consensus that the word ‘Easter’ is derived from an Old High German word, 'eostarum' which means 'east', which is further based on a Latin phrase that is understood to mean 'dawn'. Times got a quote from Merriam-Webster Editor-at-Large, Peter Sokolowski about this wherein he stated that “The basic logic seems to have been: ‘Spring > sun > dawn > east.'”
While Bede’s view seems to tidily tie up the usual associations one may make with Easter, it is the latter view that has achieved widespread acceptance among language experts.
