Persian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Middle Iranian, whence also Old Armenian սոխ (sox). Further derivation uncertain, but probably ultimately Turkic, from Proto-Turkic *sogan, cognate to Southern Altai согоно (sogono), Tuvan согуна (soguna), Khakas соған (soğan), Bashkir һуған (huğan), Chuvash сухан (suhan), Azerbaijani soğan (onion), Turkish soğan, Old Turkic 𐰣𐰍𐰽(soɣun), etc., all meaning “onion”; also borrowed into Mongolian as сонгино (songino). Compare that on the other hand the most widespread Turkic word for garlic, *sarïmsak, is borrowed from Iranian.
