Manx[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Old Irish súil (eye, hope), from Proto-Celtic *sūli- (sun) (compare Welsh haul (sun), from Proto-Celtic ablaut variant *sāwol-), from Proto-Indo-European *sóh₂wl̥ (sun). The change in meaning in Old Irish is apparently due to the mythological view of the sun as the "eye of the sky".
