Etymology[edit]

From Old Albanian miize, enlarged with -, from Proto-Albanian *mūjā, from Proto-Indo-European *muH- (compare English midge), variant of *mus- (compare Ancient Greek μυι̃α (muĩa), Serbo-Croatian muva). A comparison with Old High German mīza (gnat), Old English mite (mite), Latin minor (small) is also possible.
