Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Hellenic *ornūmai, from Proto-Indo-European *h₃er- (to move, stir, spring).

Cognates include Sanskrit ऋणोति (ṛṇóti), Latin orior and Albanian orë. Compare also Old Armenian յառնեմ (yaṙnem). The Epic athematic middle aorist form ὦρτο (ôrto) matches exactly with Sanskrit आर्त (ārta), the equivalent form of ऋणोति (ṛṇóti).
