Etymology

edit

From Middle Persian 𐭬𐭩𐭥𐭪 (mēwag, fruit), and within Iranian, related to Manichaean Middle Persian 𐫖𐫏𐫇 (myw /⁠mēw⁠/), Baluchi نیوَگ (nēwag, fruit), and Parthian 𐫖𐫏𐫃𐫅 (mygd /⁠miɣẟ⁠/) and 𐫖𐫏𐫃𐫅𐫃 (mygdg /⁠miɣẟag⁠/, fruit).

The term is traditionally derived from Proto-Iranian *madvī- and further from Proto-Indo-European *médʰu (honey, wine, mead). However, Henning rejects this derivation, instead deriving the proto-form as *migda- and taking it as borrowed from Proto-Semitic *m-g-d- (fruit).[1]

This etymology is missing or incomplete. Please add to it, or discuss it at the Etymology scriptorium.
Particularly: “Which Semitic root is *mgd exactly, and what are its descendants?”
