Etymology[edit]

Borrowed from Latin argentum, from Proto-Italic *argentom, from Proto-Indo-European *h₂r̥ǵn̥tóm, from *h₂erǵ- (white). Old Spanish and Old Portuguese had inherited descendants of the word in arento, possibly from a Vulgar Latin variant *arentum, perhaps influenced by Celtic; cf. also obsolete Italian ariento, which may have come from an Oscan-influenced form[1]. See also Spanish arienzo, inherited from a related root.
