Etymology[edit]

Thematicization of Proto-Indo-European *dʰéh₁s, s-stem noun derived from *dʰeh₁-. Cognate with Phyrigian δεως ‎(deōs, to the gods), Old Armenian դիք ‎(dikʿ, pagan gods) and Latin fēriae ‎(festival days), fānum ‎(temple) and fēstus ‎(festive).

Despite its superficial similarity in form and meaning, the word is not etymologically related to Latin deus.
