Etymology[edit]

From Ancient Greek ᾍδης (Hā́idēs). Possibly Proto-Indo-European *n̥- (not) + *weyd- (see), meaning "that which is unseen",[1] equivalent to ἀ- (a-) + εἶδον (eîdon). Puhvel (1987) argues that it is from *Sm̥weyd-, from *sm̥- (compounding stem) + *weyd- (see), meaning "see-together" or "uniter", equivalent to ἁ- (ha-) + εἶδον (eîdon), cognate with Russian свида́ние (svidánije, see each other), and partly in Sanskrit saṁgamanam janānāṁ (ingatherer of people), where *weyd- is replaced with *gam-.
