From Middle English or, oor, blend of Old English ōra (ore, unwrought metal) and ār (brass, copper, bronze), the first a derivate of ear (earth), the second from Proto-Germanic *aiz (cognates Old Norse eir (brass, copper), German ehern (of metal, of iron), Gothic 𐌰𐌹𐌶 (aiz, ore)), from Proto-Indo-European *áyos, h₂éyos. Compare Dutch oer (ferrous hardpan; bog iron ore). Confer Latin aes (bronze, copper), Avestan 𐬀𐬌𐬌𐬀𐬵(aiiah), Sanskrit अयस् (áyas, copper, iron).
