EtymologyEdit

From Middle Irish Aengus, Oengus, from Old Irish Oíngus, from oín(one), from Proto-Celtic *oinos, from Proto-Indo-European *óynos(single, one). The etymology of the second element is disputed; most likely it is Old Irish gus(strength, vigour), from Proto-Celtic *gustu-, or it may be from Proto-Celtic *gus-(choose).

Proper nounEdit

Anghus m

  1. A male given name, corresponding to Angus.
