Thai[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

Borrowing from Pali dāna (alms; donation; gift) or Sanskrit दान (dāna, alms; donation; gift); perhaps via Old Khmer dāna, dān (alms; donation; gift); extended as Sanskrit प्रदान (pradāna), Old Khmer pradāna, from which Thai ประทาน (bprà-taan) was derived. Cognate with Modern Khmer ទាន (téan); Lao ທານ (thān).
