Etymology[edit]

From Middle Persian šmblyt (šamblīt, šamblīd), šmblytk' (šambalīdag, fenugreek), whence also Old Armenian շամղիտակ (šamłitak) and Arabic [script needed] (šimlidej). Ultimately borrowed from a Semitic language. Compare Jewish Babylonian Aramaic שִׁבְּלִילְתָא (šibbəlīləṯā), Classical Syriac ܫܒܠܝܠܬܐ (šebbəlīltā) and ܦܠܝܠܬܐ (pəlīltā), all from Akkadian 𒊭𒄠𒁀𒇷𒅋𒌈 (šambaliltum), [script needed] (šabbaliltu), [script needed] (šammu baliltu, fenugreek, literally mixture grass).

The word is found in other modern Iranian languages: compare Harzani [script needed] (šunbulla), Badakhshan Tajik [script needed] (šalit, orach), Wakhi šlit, šliṭ (Chenopodium album), Shiraz Persian شملیز (šamliz).
