Old Armenian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Unknown origin. For the development of sense “splendour, brilliance” from “shadow” Ačaṙyan compares Old English scima, meaning both “twilight, gloom” and “ray, brightness”. According to Jahukyan we are dealing with a contamination of two sources: the sense of “shadow; veil, headcover” comes from Proto-Indo-European *skheu-, a variant of *skeu- (to cover); the sense of “splendour, brilliance” is from Iranian, compare Persian شکوه (šukōh, majesty, magnificence, dignity, grandeur).
