Etymology 2[edit]

From Proto-Slavic *divъ (malevolent being), either the same as Etymology 1 or an Iranian borrowing (see Proto-Iranian *daywáh (demon)). Another possibility is a derivative from Proto-Slavic *divo (wonder, miracle) (compare Bulgarian чудо́вище (čudóvište, moster) from чу́до (čúdo, miracle)). Cognate with Serbo-Croatian ди̏в (giant) (dialectal), Old East Slavic дивъ (divŭ, demon which brings misfortune).

Noun[edit]

див (divm (feminine ди́ва or диви́ня)

  1. (dialectal, mythology) mystic being, demon (usually malevolent in nature)
