Middle English. Either from early Scandinavian, or the reflex of an unattested Old English word from the same Germanic base, as is perhaps suggested by the number of cognates in other West Germanic languages: Middle Dutch niesen (Dutch niezen), Middle Low German nēsen, neysen, neesen, etc., Old High German niesan, niosan, niusan (German niesen).
