Albanian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Albanian *ātuma, related to Proto-Germanic *ēþmaz (breath) and Sanskrit आत्मन् (ātmán, blow, breath, soul), where the inlaut -y- may be secondary[1]; from Proto-Indo-European *dʰuh₂mós (smoke). Compare Old High German toum (vapor, haze, mist), Ancient Greek θῡμός (thūmós, breath, life, soul, heart, spirit, courage, mind, temper, will, anger, wrath), Latin fumus (smoke, steam, vapor).
