Etymology[edit]

Connections to Akkadian 𒅈𒋢𒌒𒁍 (arsuppu, a type of cereal with a braid appearance; an unidentified type of apple or produce, literally carp fish, scales), so applied from the appearance of its head.

Or, perhaps from Middle Persian *xār-čōp (literally thorn stick), from [script needed] (hʾl /xār/, thorn) + [script needed] (cwp /čōb, čōp/) equalling modern Persian خار(xār)) + چوب(čōb), چوپ(čōp, stick).
