EtymologyEdit

From Middle Irish Aengus, Oengus, from Old Irish Oíngus, from oín ‎(one), from Proto-Celtic *oynos, 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
