Etymology 2Edit

A confluence of multiple different etymologies. Partly from the mythological name (see etymology 1), partly from Proto-Norse [Term?] (wealth, property) (as the name of a mythical warrior) and partly from the Middle Low German given name Ahti, which in turn is ultimately from Ancient Greek αὐτόνομος (autónomos). The Russian name Автоном (Avtonom) (from the same Ancient Greek source) may be a fourth source (at least in eastern Finland).[1]

Proper nounEdit

Ahti

  1. a male given name
    • 1849 Kalevala (Translation 1988 by Eino Friberg) 11:1-8:
      Aika on Ahtia sanoa, / Veitikkätä vieretellä. / Ahti poika Saarelainen, / Tuo on lieto Lemmin poika, / Kasvoi koissa korkeassa / Luona armahan emonsa / Laajimman lahen perällä, / Kaukoniemen kainalossa.
      It is time to talk of Ahti, / That amusing rascal lover. / Ahti lad, the Islander, / He the wayward son of Lempi / Grew up in a hig-born home / With his most devoted mother / At the head of a big wide bay, / In the shelter of Cape Far.
