Ancient GreekEdit

EtymologyEdit

Formally derived from Proto-Indo-European *n̥bʰrós (rain-cloud, rain, cloud), with cognates including Sanskrit अभ्र (abhrá), Old Armenian ամբ (amb), Latin imber. However, Beekes and Frisk argue that the semantic mismatch does not justify this derivation. See also possibly related but also problematic ὄμβρος (ómbros, rain-water; thunder-storm).
