Etymology[edit]

Originally sanguīs, from older sanguen, from *san- (compare saniēs (ichor; ulcer)), from Proto-Indo-European *h₁sh₂-én-, oblique stem of *h₁ésh₂r̥ (blood); cf. Old Latin assyr, aser, Hittite 𒌍𒄩𒅈 (ešḫar), Sanskrit असृज् (ásṛk), Ancient Greek ἔαρ (ear), Old Armenian արիւն (ariwn). The original paradigm must have been nominative assyr, oblique san-, which then split into doublets. The element -guen is probably from unguen, inguen.
