Etymology[edit]

According to Budagov, Pedersen, Ačaṙyan and Eren, borrowed from Armenian; compare Old Armenian թոռն (tʿoṙn, grandchild). See also dialectal tor (young), also from Armenian. But according to Starostin/Dubo/Mudrak, possibly borrowed from the Iranian cognates of Armenian թոռն (tʿoṙn), for which see Proto-Indo-European *ter-. Another possibility (Starostin/Dubo/Mudrak) also includes a native Turkic origin via West Old Turkic tor ("young, young animal"), from Proto-Turkic *tōr-um (a kind of young animal), possibly from Proto-Altaic *t`ṓrV (young animal) which is sometimes confused with Proto-Indo-European *ter-,*tor- (tender; young).
