Etymology[edit]

From Old Turkic [script needed] (töpü), from Proto-Turkic *tepö (-ü) (hill, top; top of head), which, according to the controversial Altaic hypothesis, is possibly derived from Proto-Altaic *t`ĕp`á (tuft (of hair)).

Alternative origin: From Proto-Iranian, cognate with English top. Compare dialectal Persian تمب (tomb, hill).

Possible relation to Proto-Germanic *tuppaz and Proto-Slavic *dɨb-.
