From Proto-Italic *araō, from Proto-Indo-European *h₂éryeti ‎(to plough), from the root *h₂erh₃-. The root-final laryngeal was lost in the Proto-Indo-European verb, but was restored in Proto-Italic.

Cognates include Ancient Greek ἀρόω ‎(aróō), Old Church Slavonic орати ‎(orati), Lithuanian arti, and Old English erian (archaic English ear).
