EtymologyEdit

From Middle Persian hwnl ‎(hunar), Manichaean Middle Persian hwnr ‎(hunar, virtue, ability, skill), from Old Persian 𐎢𐎺𐎴𐎼 ‎(ʰuvnara, talent, capability), ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *h₁su- ‎(good) and *h₂nḗr ‎(man; power, force, vital energy).

Cognate with Manichaean Parthian hwnr ‎(hunar, virtue, skill), Old Armenian հնար ‎(hnar, means, way) (from Iranian), Avestan [script needed] 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).
