Etymology[edit]

From Arcadian Greek ϝοῖνος ‎(woînos), Mycenaean Greek 𐀺𐀜 ‎(wo-no); related to Latin vīnum, Old Armenian գինի ‎(gini), Hebrew יין ‎(yāyin) etc.; according to the Oxford Latin Dictionary, "all probably from a common Mediterranean source".[1] Perhaps instead from Proto-Indo-European *wóyh₁nom, possibly from the root *wei(H)- ‎(to twist), meaning "that of the vine"[2], and related to dialectal ὑιήν ‎(huiḗn, grapevine), possibly from Proto-Indo-European *wiHēn, which also probably comes from the same root[3].
