Etymology 1[edit]

From Proto-Albanian *eta, related to the isolated group (substrate) of Greek ἐτεός (ἐteós, true, real), ἐτάζω (ἐtázo, to test)[1]. Related to the participial form of jam and to eshë (period of time, span, space). See also Latin aetas, (source of the Aromanian etã) considered by some to be the source of the Albanian word[2], but this is uncertain.
