Persian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Middle Persian ʾcʾt' ‎(āzād, noble; free), from Old Persian *𐎠𐏀𐎠𐎫 ‎(āzāta-), from Proto-Iranian *āzāta-. Cognate with Avestan 𐬁𐬰𐬁𐬙𐬀 ‎(āzāta-, noble), Manichaean Middle Persian ʾʾzʾd ‎(āzād), and Parthian 𐭀𐭆𐭀𐭕 ‎(āzāt, noble). Akin to Old Armenian ազատ ‎(azat), Georgian აზატი ‎(azaṭi), Iranian borrowings.

Ultimately from the past participle of Proto-Iranian *zan- ‎(to be born), from Proto-Indo-European *ǵenh₁-, originally meaning “born (into the clan)” and, by extension, “noble” and “free”.
