Etymology 1Edit

Inherited from Old East Slavic вѣнъкъ (věnŭkŭ), from Proto-Slavic *vĕnъkъ, from *vĕnъ (wreath) + *-ъkъ, details of further origin unclear (possibly from Proto-Indo-European *wóh₁y-nós or derived later) but ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *weh₁y- (to twist, wind, weave).

Cognate to вен (ven), венец (venec), венок (venok), вейка (vejka), вить (vitʹ), also compare dialectal Latvian vaînuks, vaîņuks (wreath).
