Etymology 1[edit]

From Proto-Albanian *eta, related to the isolated group 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, considered by some to be the source of the Albanian word[2], but this is uncertain.
