Etymology[edit]

From Hurrian 𒉡𒊏𒀭𒋾 (nu-ra-an-ti /nuranti/, pomegranate), which is related to Hittite 𒉡𒊏𒋾 (/nurati-/), and Akkadian 𒉡𒊑𒅎𒁺 (nu-ri-im-du /nurimdu, nurimtu/, pomegranate), Sumerian 𒉡𒌫𒈠 (NU-UR2-MA /nurma/), Akkadian 𒉡𒌫𒈠 (NU-UR2-MA /nurmû/, pomegranate). See Arabic رُمَّان(rummān) for another order of the consonants.
