Old Irish[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Originally a io-stem (as shown by the dative plural form airib and the personal name Lóegaire(literally favorite nobleman) with vocative and genitive Lóegairi), later reanalyzed as a k-stem due to conflation with the synonymous airech. From Proto-Celtic *aryos (compare Gaulish personal names with Ario-, such as Ario-manus and Ario-vistus), of unknown origin.

  • Historically (since the now-defunct derivation of Adolphe Pictet, 1858) speculated to mean "freeman", and furthermore supposed to be related to Indo-Iranian *arya-. This idea was especially popular in the 19th- and early 20th-century context of "Aryan" race and language theory, which posited Aryans as "noble" "freemen" opposed to slave-like दास(dāsa)/Semites. Today, for linguistic reasons, any attempt to find a European cognate for the Indo-Iranian autonym is treated with extreme skepsis. See *arya- for details.
  • According to Meid, it is from Proto-Indo-European *pr̥h₃-(first) (Sanskrit पूर्व(pūrvá), Ancient Greek πρῶτος(prôtos), Lithuanian pirmas). According to Matasović this is less convincing because there are no traces of the laryngeal in the purported Celtic reflexes (*pr̥h₃yos would have given *ɸrāyos).
