Etymology[edit]

From Vulgar Latin *nutria or *lutria / *lutrea, from Latin lutra, from Proto-Italic *utrā, from Proto-Indo-European *udréh₂, the feminine form of *udrós, from the root *wed-. The Spanish word, preserving the -t-, may have arrived through the intermediate of either Mozarabic or more likely a Southern Italian language or dialect: cf. Salerno dialect (of Neapolitan) nùtria, Calabrian ùtria and lùtria, utre in Basilicata, etc. The Vulgar Latin form was likely influenced by Ancient Greek ἐνυδρίς (enudrís)[1]. Compare also Catalan llúdria, Portuguese lontra.
