Etymology[edit]

From Old Danish hiarnæ, hiærnæ, from Old Norse hjarni (brain), from Proto-Germanic *hersô (brain), genitive *herznaz,[1] from Proto-Indo-European *ḱerh₂s- (head). The same Germanic word is the source of Danish isse (crown of head), from Old Norse hjarsi, hjassi. A collective formation from this word is found in German Hirn, Gehirn, from Proto-Germanic *hirzniją (brain).
