Proto-Slavic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From earlier *mořo, from Proto-Indo-European *moryo-, o-extension of *móri (standing/dim water). Cognate with Lithuanian mãrios, Proto-Germanic *mari (sea, body of water), Proto-Italic *mari, Proto-Celtic *mori, and possibly Old Armenian մաւր (mawr, marsh, mud).

Modern Bulgarian and Macedonian technically reflect *morę, probably a later reanalyzed byform.
