Etymology[edit]

Borrowed from Hurrian 𒄭𒂗𒍪𒊒 (ḫe-en-zu-ru /⁠ḫenzūru, ḫinzur(i)⁠/)[1] (possibly to be transcribed ḫnzor(i)), or its unattested Urartian cognate. Akkadian 𒄭𒂗𒍪𒊒 (/⁠ḫinzūru⁠/), Aramaicחֲזוּרָא(ḥăzzūrā), Classical Syriacܚܙܘܪܐ(ḥazzūrā) and possibly Sumerian 𒄑𒄩𒋗𒌫 (GIŠḫa-šu-ur2 /⁠ḫašḫur⁠/) are borrowed from the same source.
