Etymology[edit]

Thematicization of Proto-Indo-European *dʰéh₁s, s-stem noun derived from *dʰeh₁-. Cognate with Phyrigian δεως (deōs, to the gods), Old Armenian դիք (dikʿ, pagan gods) and Latin fēriae (festival days), fānum (temple) and fēstus (festive).

Despite its superficial similarity in form and meaning, the word is not etymologically related to Latin deus.
