Etymology[edit]

From earlier خدای(xodây), from Middle Persian [script needed] (hwtʾy /xwadāy/, lord) (Manichaean Middle Persian 𐫑𐫇𐫅𐫀𐫏(xwadāy)), with both religious and secular connotations. Rendered in Book Pahlavi as the ideogram [script needed] (MNA) (Aramaic 𐡌𐡍𐡀(mnʾ /mona/), also meaning "lord"), ultimately from Proto-Iranian *hwatā́wā (lord, god).

Cognates with Avestan 𐬓𐬀𐬜𐬀𐬙𐬀(xᵛaδata, self-determined) (in the sense of "not dependent on anything/anyone"), Bactrian χοαδηο (xoadēo, lord) and Kurdish خوا(xwa), Sanskrit स्वधा (svádhā). Also related to خود(xod, self), خدیو(xadiv, lord, master), خاتون(xâtun, lady, noblewoman).
