Old Armenian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Middle Median *axšēn, from Iranian *xšaiθnī-, a feminine formation from *xšāy- (to rule); compare Ossetian ӕхсин (æxsin, lady, mistress). Alternatively from the homonym *xšaiθnī- (shining, magnificent, splendid), from *xšay- (to shine); compare Ossetian ӕхсид (æxsid, dawn). The masculine form *xšaita- (shining) gave աշխէտ (ašxēt).
