Etymology 1[edit]

From Proto-Indo-European *pórt-h₂-u-. Cognate with Ancient Greek πόρτις (pórtis, bull-calf; boy), Sanskrit पृथुक (pṛthuka, boy; the young of any animal), Welsh erthyl (untimely birth), Old High German farro (German Farre (bullock)). The initial *p- survives in dialectal հորթ (hortʿ) which is the accepted and usual form in modern literary Armenian. Related to որդի (ordi, child).

Etymology 2[edit]

According to Ačaṙyan, developed figuratively from որթ (ortʿ, calf); typologically he compares երինջ (erinǰ, heifer; sprout of grapes), Ancient Greek βλαστός (blastós, sprout; child), μόσχος (móskhos, calf; young shoot, twig). Martirosyan does not discuss որթ (ortʿ, vine) s.v. որթ (ortʿ, calf), but he mentions the pair under the semantic field young animals : young branches : child, generation (human, fauna and flora), along with երինջ (erinǰ, heifer) : երինջ (erinǰ, sprout of grapes) and մորճ (morč, thicket; young branch) : մանուկ-մորճուկ (manuk-morčuk, young (children, orphans)), մորճիկ (morčik, offspring, son or daughter).

J̌ahukyan, following Pedersen, derives from Proto-Indo-European *ortʰo-, beside *ort- (vine), with Albanian hardhi as a cognate. Alternatively, following Petersson, he derives this from Proto-Indo-European *portʰo-, beside *pertʰ- (pole, sprout), with Ancient Greek πτόρθος (ptórthos, sprout) as a cognate.
