گل

From late Middle Persian gwl (gul, rose, flower), from Old Persian *vr̥da- (compare Iranian borrowings Old Armenian վարդ (vard), and possibly Ancient Greek ῥόδον (rhódon, rose) (see it for more), which yielded English rose), from Proto-Iranian *wṛda- (compare Avestan 𐬬𐬀𐬭𐬆𐬜𐬀(varəδa), Sogdian [Term?] (/ward/), Parthian [Manichaean needed] (wʾr /wār/)), Talysh ول(vel), from Proto-Indo-Iranian [Term?], from Proto-Indo-European *wr̥dʰo- (sweetbriar) (compare Albanian hurdhe (ivy), Latin rubus (bramble), Old English word (thornbush)). Ultimately probably from Proto-Indo-European *Hwerdʰ- (to grow (large/strong)) (attested only in Proto-Indo-Iranian *Hwardʰ- (to grow)).
