Sanskrit[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Indo-Aryan *br̥hánt, from Proto-Indo-Iranian *bhrj́hant-, from Proto-Indo-European *bʰrǵʰ-ent-(high), a derivation of *bʰerǵʰ-(to rise), with cognates including Persian بالا(bālā, height) and بلند(boland, buland, high, tall), Old Armenian բարձր(barjr, high), Tocharian A pärkär(long) and Old English burg (English borough).

The corresponding verbal Proto-Indo-European root *bʰerǵʰ-(to become high, rise, elevate) also gave Sanskrit बृंहति(bṛṃhati, to make strong, make lofty, firm) and ब्राह्मण(brāhmaṇa, Brahma).
