EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Slavic *glupъ. Cognate with Serbo-Croatian глу̏пав/glȕpav, Bulgarian глупав (glupav), Russian глупый (glupyj), Slovak hlúpy. Non-Slavic cognates include Old Norse glópr. According to Erich Berneker and Uhlenbeck the Slavic words were borrowed from a Germanic source, which is contested by Vasmer.
