Old Armenian[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

The original spelling is հաւտ (hawt), from Proto-Indo-European *peh₂- (to protect) grown with -d-, as in Persian پاده (pāda, flock). Alternatively, connected with հատանեմ (hatanem, to cut) and հօտ (hōt, cut-off branch) with a semantic development ‘to cut, divide’ > ‘a division of the flock’ > ‘flock of sheep’.

Alternative forms[edit]

    ճարակ հօտիցčarak hōticʿ — pastures for flocks
