Etymology[edit]

From Ancient Greek Αἰθιοπία (Aithiopía), from Αἰθίοψ (Aithíops, an Ethiopian), traditionally said to mean "one with a charred complexion", from αἴθω (aíthō, I burn) + ὤψ (ṓps, eye, face, complexion), but this is formally difficult and seems like a folk etymology.

  • IPA(key): /ɛˈti̯oːpi̯ən/
  • (file)
  • Hyphenation: Äthi‧o‧pi‧en

Proper noun[edit]
