Old Armenian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

The origin is uncertain. Perhaps from Proto-Indo-European *h₁(e)h₂no- +‎ -ուր (-ur) and cognate with Latin anus, Old Irish áinne (Irish fáinne). According to Martirosyan, we may be dealing with a substrate word.

Ałayan derives from earlier *անդուր (*andur) (compare անդրակ (andrak)), from Proto-Indo-European *əndorō, grown from the root *i-n-dro/*endro, a by-form of *oid- (to swell), whence այտնում (aytnum), with a sense development “to swell, swelling” → “round” → “ring”, but this is considered untenable by Martirosyan. Ałayan also connects անդրուար (andruar).
