Etymology[edit]

Derived from Czech verb orat ‎(to plough), which is derived from Proto-Slavic *orati. This is related to Lithuanian árti, Gothic 𐌰𐍂𐌾𐌰𐌽 ‎(arjan), Middle High German erran, Latin arāre (all of them meaning "to plough"), Old Irish airim ‎(I plough), Ancient Greek ἀρόω ‎(aróō, I plough), Armenian արաւր ‎(arawr, a plough), and Tocharian A and Tocharian B āre ‎(a plough). All of these come from Proto-Indo-European *h₂erh₃- ‎(to plough).[1]
