Old Armenian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Grown with a prothetic e- from Middle Iranian *rēvant, from Proto-Iranian *raivant-, *rayivant- (possessing wealth). Compare Avestan [script needed] (raēvant-, rich, splendid), [script needed] (rayi-, wealth), Sanskrit रेवत् (revat, wealthy), रयिवत् (rayivat, possessing wealth), रयि (rayi, wealth).

On the other hand, Hübschmann derived it from Middle Iranian *arvant- (swift); compare Middle Persian [script needed] (arvand, swift), Avestan [script needed] (aurvant-, swift). But this is unlikely, as *arvant- would have yielded Old Armenian *Արուանդ (*Aruand).

Corresponds to Latin Orontes and Ancient Greek Ὀρόντης (Oróntēs) of Classical authors. Related to Երուազ (Eruaz).

Proper noun[edit]
