EtymologyEdit

Ačaṙyan leaves the origin open.

Ałayan derives from the preposition առա- ‎(aṙa-) + *քէն ‎(*kʿēn), from *քեյն ‎(*kʿeyn), from Proto-Indo-European *kʷetən, an extended form of the root *kʷet-, *ket- ‎(battle), +‎ ‎(-i); compare Proto-Celtic *katus ‎(battle) (note especially Welsh cadr ‎(strong, mighty), cadarn ‎(powerful, mighty), Breton kadarn ‎(brave)), Proto-Germanic *haþuz ‎(battle), Old Church Slavonic котора ‎(kotora, quarrel)); see Walde–Pokorny for this root. J̌ahukyan is skeptical of this etymology remarking that the proto-form of these words is usually reconstructed with a *ḱ-, e.g. Pokorny has *ḱat-.
