Etymology 1[edit]

From Proto-Finnic *karvas, either derived from Proto-Uralic *karwa, borrowed from Proto-Germanic *harwaz (compare Middle High German hare, German herb), or from the former but influenced by the latter. Finnic cognates include Livonian kōraz. If the word is Uralic, other cognates include Udmurt курыт (kuryt), Komi-Permyak курыт (kuryt), Komi-Zyrian курыд (kuryd), and Khanty корәг (korəg).
