Old Armenian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Grown with a prothetic e- from Iranian *Rēvant, from *Raivant-, *Rayivant- (possessing wealth). Compare Avestan [script needed] (raēvant-, rich, splendid), [script needed] (rayi-, wealth), Sanskrit रेवत् (revat, wealthy), रयिवत् (rayivat, possessing wealth), रयि (rayi, wealth).

Hübschmann derived from Iranian *arvant- (swift); compare Middle Persian [script needed] (arvand, swift), Avestan [script needed] (aurvant-, swift). But this is unlikely, as *arvant- would have yielded Armenian *Արուանդ (*Aruand).

Corresponds to Latin Orontes and Ancient Greek Ὀρόντης (Oróntēs) of Classical authors. Related to Երուազ (Eruaz).

Proper noun[edit]
