sielu

FinnishEdit

EtymologyEdit

Probably from Baltic *sḗjlā (compare Lithuanian siela), along with other Finnish loanwords from Baltic languages of the same thematic group, see etymology sections of e.g.taivas (heaven), Jumala (God). Another line of explanation links the word with Germanic language (compare Swedish själ, German Seele and English soul).

NounEdit

sielu

  1. soul
  2. moving spirit (one who provides significant impetus or guidance in a given venture, movement, enterprise etc.)
