Romanian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Probably from auș (old man) + diminutive suffix -el. Other ideas suggest Vulgar Latin aucellus (small bird) (compare Italian uccello, French oiseau), from Latin avis, but this is harder to explain due to phonetic difficulties as well as the reason why a general term for bird would apply to a specific species.

Pronunciation[edit]
