From Proto-Semitic *laḥm- (food, eatables; meat, bread), from Proto-Afroasiatic *laḥam- (food). Cognate with Aramaic לַחְמָא (laḥmā), Classical Syriac ܠܚܡܐ (laḥmā), Hebrew לֶחֶם (léḥem, bread), Ugaritic 𐎍𐎈𐎎 (lḥm /⁠laḥmu⁠/), Ge'ez ላህም (lahm), all meaning “food” or “bread”. The varying semantic developments are due to the differing agriculture and diets of the Arabian Peninsula and the Fertile Crescent.
