Etymology

[edit]

Three etymologies have been proposed:[1]

  1. Inherited from Sanskrit काम (kāma, love, desire).
  2. Borrowed from Middle Persian [script needed] (kām-am).
  3. Borrowed from Old Armenian կամ-իմ (kam-im) (itself an Iranian borrowing).

All three are ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *keh₂- (to desire, wish).

Verb

[edit]

kamel

  1. to love
  2. to want
