Etymology[edit]

Possibly related to تازیک (tâzik), a re-borrowing from Old Turkic.

According to W. Henning, from *Tāt-čīk, originally *Tād-čīk.

Popular folk etymology traces the word to Tajik тоҷ (toj, crown) (see Arabic تَاج (tāj), from Persian تاج (tâj, crown)), but this is false.

See Fragner for more discussion.
