Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Hellenic *wóinos (compare Mycenaean Greek 𐀺𐀜 (wo-no)), from Proto-Indo-European *wéyh₁ō; related to English wine, Latin vīnum, Old Armenian գինի (gini) 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].
