Etymology[edit]

Ačaṙyan leaves the origin open.

According to J̌ahukyan, perhaps from an extended derivative of Proto-Indo-European *(s)ker- (to cut); compare Sanskrit कृधु (kṛdhu, shortened, mutilated, small, deficient), Lithuanian skur̃sti (to be in need), skur̃das (poverty) and especially skur̃džius (pauper). Pokorny reconstructs *(s)ker-dʰ-, *(s)kr̥-dʰ- (small, miserable) for these.
