Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Baltic *dar-bas, from Proto-Indo-European *der-, *dar- (to tear, to split). The original meaning was, according to some researchers, “till,” “plow” (compare Russian дерба (derbá, breaking; newly ploughed field); the object of this work is Old Norse torf, torfa (turf, sod, peat), German Torf (peat), English turf, which has the same origin as Russian дёрн (djorn, sod, turf)) or, according to others, “wicker-work, wattling, weaving” (compare Belarusian дораб (dórab, basket) (< Proto-Slavic *dorbь), доровиць (doróvits', to bend)). Cognates include Lithuanian dárbas. [1]
