Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Finnic [Term?]. Cognate to Finnish kantele, Votic kantõlõ, kannõla, kannõl, Veps kandel, Ingrian kannel, and Livvi kandeleh. Possibly a Baltic loan, compare Lithuanian kanklės (kantele) and Latvian kokle (kantele). Possibly derived from the roots kaas (cover) or kand (heel), in which case the Baltic words would probably be Finnic loans. Possibly from Proto-Slavic *gondtlь, compare Russian гусли (gusli).
