EtymologyEdit

Compare Daco-Romanian copil. Probably from South Slavic *kopylъ (shoot, sprout; bastard) (compare Serbo-Croatian копиле (kȍpile), Bulgarian копеле (kópele)), from *kopati (to dig, cultivate). Also borrowed into Albanian kopil, Byzantine Greek κόπελος (kópelos). Alternatively an ultimately paleo-Balkan substratum word.
