Variant of (OC dreʔ) (Guangyun; Schuessler, 2009). If true, see there for etymology.

Janhunen (2011) instead suggests that and possibly had denoted different animals, yet were confused so they would be used seemingly interchangeably to refer to the same range of vague folkloric and mythological beasts.
