First attested in the Seokbo sangjeol (釋譜詳節 / 석보상절), 1447, as Middle Korean 일홈〮 (Yale: ìlhwóm). Also attested in the Yongbi eocheon'ga (龍飛御天歌 / 용비어천가), 1447, as Middle Korean 일훔〮 (Yale: ìlhwúm).
Appears to be unattested verb *잃다〮 (Yale: *ìlh-tá, “to name”) + 옴〮 (Yale: -wóm, gerund-forming suffix) with the gerund undergoing a semantic shift to a full noun; the verb is also found in 일ᄏᆞᆮ다〮 (Yale: ìlh-kòt-tá, “to name”) > Korean 일컫다 (ilkeotda). Beyond Koreanic, Andrew Shimunek identifies the form as borrowed from Khitan [script needed] (*irV), [script needed] (*iri, “name, title”).
