Old Armenian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Indo-European *olyo-. Cognates include Old Irish uile, Welsh holl and Proto-Germanic *allaz, *ala-.

Alternatively, from Proto-Indo-European *solw-yo-, from, *solh₂- (whole).

A contamination of both is possible.

For the semantic correspondence “being alive” : “wholeness” compare Turkish sağ (alive; whole).

Urartian [script?] (ulguše, health, well being, the being alive) may be borrowed from Proto-Armenian.
