Old Armenian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Indo-European *h₂rew-i- (sun, sunshine), whence also Sanskrit रवि (ravi, sun) and Hittite [script needed] (ḫaru(wa)nae, to become bright, get light, dawn). Related to արեգ (areg).

According to Martirosyan, Old Armenian արեւ (arew) / արեգ (areg) probably reflects an Indo-European or Armeno-Aryan poetically or sacrally marked designation of “sun”, replacing the Proto-Indo-European unmarked profane *sóh₂wl̥ (sun).
