From Proto-Balto-Slavic *šainan, *šeinan, from Proto-Indo-European *ḱoinom (from Proto-Indo-European *ḱoi-no (hay), from Proto-Indo-European *ḱei- (color, usually gray)). Cognates include Lithuanian šiẽnas (hay) (regionally siẽnas), Old Church Slavonic сѣно (sěno, hay) (Russian сено (séno), Ukrainian сіно (síno), Bulgarian сено (senó), Czech seno, Polish siano), and possibly Ancient Greek κοινά (koiná, cattle food).[1]
