Albanian[edit]

Zog

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Albanian *dźāg, from Proto-Indo-European *ǵ(h)(u)eh2-G- (young animal, nestling). Cognate to Armenian ձագ (jag, nestling).[1] The clear relation to Persian زاق (zāq, young animal) might suggest the word belongs to a small group of old borrowings from Indo-Iranian.

  1. bird
