EtymologyEdit

From Middle Persian [Book Pahlavi needed] (hwnl), 𐫍𐫇𐫗𐫡(hwnr /hunar/, virtue, ability, skill), from Old Persian 𐎢𐎺𐎴𐎼 (ʰuvnara, talent, capability), ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *h₁su- (good) + *h₂nḗr (man; power, force, vital energy). Cognate with Old Armenian հնար (hnar, means, way) (from Iranian), Avestan 𐬵𐬎𐬥𐬀𐬭𐬀‎ m (hunara, skill, strength), Sanskrit सूनर (sū-nára, possessing vital strength, mighty, prosperous, beautiful).

Compare also formally identical formations in other Indo-European languages: Old Irish so-nirt, so-nairt (strong), Welsh hy-nerth (mighty), Ancient Greek εὐ-ήνωρ (eu-ḗnōr, manly).
