Etymology[edit]

Likely through Coptic, ultimately from Egyptian snḏt (/shondjt, shont, shonnet, shondj, shondet/, being feared, being respected, evoking reverence or respect; acacia) stemming from its religious significance. Compare Akkadian 𒊭𒄠𒂅 (/šamṭu, samṭu/, acacia), a foreign loan suspected to be borrowed from the same Egyptian.
