Etymology 1[edit]

From Proto-Turkic *gẹlin (bride, daughter-in-law)[1]. Probably a derivation from Proto-Turkic *gẹl- (to come), whence also Azerbaijani gəlmək. The etymology is probably based on the fact that a daughter-in-law used to be a newcomer in her husband's extended household[2]. Starostin et al. reject the seemingly obvious relation between the two roots in favor of the form *kele reconstructed for the largely discredited Proto-Altaic[3]. Cognate with Old Turkic 𐰚𐰠𐰤 (kelin /kl²n²/, daughter-in-law)[4], Turkish gelin (daughter-in-law), Gagauz gelin (bride), etc.
