Old Armenian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Indo-European *h₂rew-i- ‎(sun, sunshine), whence also Sanskrit रवि ‎(ravi, sun), 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).
