Old Irish[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Celtic *aryos (compare Gaulish personal names with Ario-, such as Ario-manus and Ario-vistus), which is of disputed origin:

  • Traditionally it has been compared to Sanskrit अर्य (aryá, kind, hospitable), a derivative of अरि (arí, guest), which would render the Proto-Indo-European reconstruction *h₂eryós (host).
  • According to Meid, it is from Proto-Indo-European *pr̥h₃- (first) (Sanskrit पूर्व (pūrvá), Ancient Greek πρῶτος (prôtos), Lithuanian pirmas). According to Matasović this is less convincing because there are no traces of the laryngeal in the purported Celtic reflexes (*pr̥h₃yos would have given *ɸrāyos).
  • According to Mallory and Adams (EIEC), the original meaning was "freeman", and the meaning "noble" possibly reflects PIE *pr̥h₃yos (first). Further, they connect it to PIE *h₂erós (member of one's own (ethnic) group, peer, freeman), from *h₂er- (to fit), with alleged cognates such as Sanskrit आर्य (ā́rya-), Old Persian [script needed] (Ariya-) and Avestan [script needed] (Airya).
