Baxter & Sagart (2014) proposes that this is borrowed from Old Chinese (OC *k.rˤoŋ), thus making it non-Sino-Vietnamese reading of Chinese (SV: lung, lộng).

Alves (2018) proposes that chuồng and lồng are doublets and both are early regional loanwords from Chinese , yet he is uncertain about connection to Old Chinese (OC *k.rˤoŋ); as Old Chinese *kr- regularly yields Vietnamese ‹s-› instead (as in sức & sen). However, chuồng’s initial ‹ch-› might have resulted from another sound change which yields ‹ch-› of chàng & chạp.
