Etymology

From Middle English one, on, oan, an, from Old English ān (one), from Proto-West Germanic *ain, from Proto-Germanic *ainaz (one), from Proto-Indo-European *óynos (single, one). Cognate with Scots ae, ane, wan, yin (one); North Frisian ån (one); Saterland Frisian aan (one); West Frisian ien (one); Dutch een, één (one); German Low German een; German ein, eins (one); Swedish en (one); Norwegian Nynorsk ein (one), Icelandic einn (one); Latin ūnus (one) (Old Latin oinos); Russian оди́н (odín).

Use as indefinite personal pronoun influenced by unrelated French on.

Verb form from Middle English onen.

Around the 14th century, in southwest and western England, the word began to be pronounced with an initial /w/ (compare e.g. woak, Middle English wocke, a dialectal form of oak), and the spellings won and wone began to be found alongside on, one; the /w/ had become the norm by the 18th century. In alone, atone, and only, as well as in the dialectal form un, 'un (and in none and no), the older pronunciations without /w/ are preserved, while once shows the same /w/.
