Livonian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Compare Latvian nedēļa, Estonian nädal. Suhonen doesn't list this word as being borrowed via Latvian. On Latvian nedēļa, Karulis notes that it has been borrowed from Old East Slavic недѣлꙗ ‎(nedělja, Sunday) already before 13th century.[1] Evidently this is the source of the Estonian and Livonian words as well.
