Etymology[edit]

According to Beekes, from a feminine derivative ending in *-ih₂ of the oblique stem h₃er-n- of Proto-Indo-European *h₃érō. The alternate ὄρνιξ (órnix) is a back-formation from the dative plural ὄρνιξι (órnixi) of the alternate stem ὄρνῑχ- (órnīkh-). See also ὄρνεον (órneon) from the same root.
