Old Georgian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

According to Ačaṙean, from Old Armenian արծիւ (arciw); perhaps, a back-formation from genitive արծուոյ (arcuoy), analogically after թիւ (tʿiw) : genitive թուոյ (tʿuoy).

However, Chukhua denies this and derives it from Proto-Kartvelian *rac̣iw- connecting it with Svan რა̈ჭუ̂ (räč̣û), რეჭუ̂ (reč̣û, rabbit), thus deriving Armenian from Georgian. He explains the Svan semantic shift by Latin aquila (eagle) <-> aquilus (darkish) and Russian серый (seryj, gray) -> серяк (serjak, rabbit).
