Etymology[edit]

The origin is uncertain.

Ačaṙyan takes the root to be *արգ- ‎(*arg-), found also in արգահատեմ ‎(argahatem), and derives it from Proto-Indo-European *arkʷ-, with Welsh arffed ‎(lap) and Irish arcuinn ‎(cow's udder) as cognates; J̌ahukyan derived the ending -անդ ‎(-and) from the Proto-Indo-European *-ti- suffix with a preceding -- element.

Others connect the word with Proto-Slavic *grǫdь ‎(breast) (Russian грудь ‎(grudʹ)).
