Alternative forms[edit]

Etymology[edit]

The origin is uncertain.

Perhaps from յ- ‎(y-) +‎ Proto-Indo-European *o-gʷʰhon- or *o-gʷʰno- (compare Sanskrit आहनस् ‎(ā-hanás), Persian آگندن ‎(āgandan), آگن ‎(āgan-, to fill)), from *gʷʰen- ‎(to swell, abound) and cognate with Sanskrit घन ‎(ghaná, compact, solid, hard, firm, dense), Ancient Greek εὐθενής ‎(euthenḗs, in abundance), Lithuanian ganėti ‎(to suffice), Old Church Slavonic гонѣти ‎(goněti, to suffice).

As an alternative, Martirosyan connects with Ancient Greek ὄχλος ‎(ókhlos) and hypothetically assumes a common borrowing of substrate origin.

Adjective[edit]
