Alanic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

The beginning certainly contains Proto-Iranian *aspa- (horse), from Proto-Indo-European *h₁éḱwos. The second part is identified by Abaev with Proto-Iranian *rauka- (light; shining), from Proto-Indo-European *lewk-; the compound would thus mean “light-colored horse” or “having light-colored horses” with an exact parallel in Ancient Greek Λεύκιππος (Leúkippos).

Proper noun[edit]
