Ancient Greek[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Unclear. The oak sense has been argued from Proto-Indo-European *h₂eiǵ- with cognates such as aesculus and Old English āc (English oak). However, the haver-grass sense has been argued to derive from αἴγιλος (aígilos). See also ἀγχίλωψ (ankhílōps) for the lachrymal fistula sense.
