Etymology[edit]

From Old Swedish diärver. According to Svenska Akademiens ordbok it may be related to the same stem as deorfan ("to work; to act") and dirbti ("to work"), or Ancient Greek τϱέφειν (tϱéphein) ("to make solid; to make fat; to feed; to nurture"). Nationalencyklopedins ordbok suggests a relation to German derb ("coarse").
