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-.
