PCelt. *kayto- ‘wood’ < PIE. *kayto- 'wood, field'. "The element -cetium found in toponyms such as Anicetis, Leto-cetum, tò ketíon óros (Ptolemy) might reflect a late Gaul. reflex of *kayto-. This is a correspondence limited to Celtic and Germanic. The a-vocalism in these words is difficult to account for. Maybe they were borrowed from some substrate in NW Europe" (RM).
