EtymologyEdit

From Aramaic חוֹחַא(ḥōḥā, thornbush), likely originally referring to the Prunus spinosa variety, commonly known as blackthorn; cognates with Classical Syriac ܚܘܚܐ(ḥōḥā, thornbush), and Hebrew חוֹחַ(ḥōaḥ, thornbush), Jewish Babylonian Aramaic חָחָא‎ / חָאחָא(ḥaḥḥā, plum), Classical Syriac ܚܲܚܵܐ(ḥaḥḥā, plum). Possibly an ancient Turkic borrowing, belonging to the family of Azerbaijani göyəm (sloe) (see there for more Turkic).
