- tile: [OE] A tile is etymologically a ‘cover’. The word comes ultimately from Latin tēgula ‘tile’, a derivative of the same Indo-European base as produced English deck and thatch and Latin tegere ‘cover’ (source of English detect, protect, etc). Tēgula was borrowed into prehistoric West Germanic as *tegala, which evolved into German ziegel, Dutch tegel, and English tile.
=> deck, detect, protect, thatch, toga
- tile (n.)

Also used in Old English and early Middle English for "brick," before that word came into use.
