soo, who came up with the word better first? im surprised it sounds just like english.

From what ive read they're not cognate, the hindi one probably comes from farsi roots which stems from one PIE word while 'better' has it's probable roots in a different word

They sound very similar indeed, but बेहतर is a Persian loanword. I guess it is just a linguistical coincidence :)

"that is a better house" should also be accepted, shouldn't it?

So बेहत sounds like बैत ?
