Etymology[edit]

From Middle Persian ʾp̄ʾt' (ābād, populous, thriving, prosperous). Per Lubotsky, from Common Iranian *āpāta-, ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *peh₂- (to protect), whence also پاییدن(pâyidan). Compare also Old Armenian ապատ (apat), -ապատ (-apat) and անապատ (anapat), Iranian borrowings.
Commonly compared to Sanskrit आवास (ā-vāsa, abode, residence, dwelling), which is most likely from वसति (vasati, to dwell, live, stop, stay).
