Alternative forms[edit]

Etymology[edit]

The origin is uncertain.

Petersson connected with Proto-Germanic *puttaz (pot), deriving պոյտն (poytn) from Proto-Indo-European *bewd-no- or *bowd-no and the Germanic word from *bud-nó-, both from the root *bewd-, *bud- (to swell). This is accepted by Pokorny and J̌ahukyan, but rejected by Ačaṙyan, who considers the Germanic to be borrowed from Medieval Latin pottus, potus (pot).

Olsen puts պոյտն (poytn) in her list of words of unknown origin, writing “loan or inheritance?”.
