Proto-Germanic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Uncertain. Possibly from Pre-Germanic *snedʰlos, from Proto-Indo-European *snedʰ- (to cut), a root probably also attested in *snadō (cut, wound). If so, the meaning might have developed from "cutting" > "eager to cut" > "eager, active, quick, brave (in battle)". For the assimilation of -dl- to -ll-, see also *stallaz, *knullaz, *trullōną.
