See also: κύδος

Ancient Greek[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Assumed to be from Proto-Indo-European *(s)kewh₁- (to perceive, pay attention) and therefore related to κοέω (koéō), Latin caveō, Sanskrit कवि (kaví, wise, poet, seer, sage), Lithuanian kavoti (safeguard, tend), Old Armenian ցուցանեմ (cʿucʿanem, I show), Polish cześć (glory) and cud (miracle). However, Beekes rejects this and leads Proto-Slavic *čudo (miracle) and κῦδος back to a Proto-Indo-European root *kewd-s- (miraculous power).
