Etymology[edit]

Named after the River Ain, from Medieval Latin Hinnis, from earlier Igneus, of pre-Roman, probably Celtic, origin; perhaps Proto-Celtic *inn, itself likely related to the river River Inn (Latin Aenus), both related to *enios (water), ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *h₁ey- (to go), found in many placenames such as the settlement Aenona.[1][2][3][4]
