Since this question remained unanswered, I gave the solution. It is a Hungarism: this word is developed in Hungarian from Slavonic word form "gospoda" and it was re-borrowed by neighbouring Slavonic dialects, such as Slovak and Rusyn (Carpathian Ukrainian) on north- east region. And these Carpathian dialects mediated the word into more central idiolects.
