Etymology 1[edit]

From ج ن ب (j-n-b) with the base stem meaning “to go aside”, “to go far off in a direction”, ”to remove to a distance”, “to be remote”, “to change” or “to veer”, “to take off one's clothes” or “to lay them aside”. The direction originates as the name of a positively-viewed warm-moist southerly wind, the humid weather allowing clothes to be laid aside, whereas شِمَال (šimāl, north) comes from a root ش م ل (š-m-l) with the meaning “bundling up” or “wrapping up” because that wind by contrast necessitated wrapping up clothes. Also see Canopus (Canopus), and سُهَيْل (suhayl, Canopus).
