Proto-GermanicEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Pre-Germanic *pémpe, with an irregular consonant change from Proto-Indo-European *pénkʷe, perhaps influenced by the initial *p (as also seen in Gaulish pempe (< Proto-Celtic *kʷenkʷe) and Oscan/Umbrian 𐌐𐌖𐌌𐌐𐌄 (pumpe) (< Proto-Italic *kʷenkʷe)). Probably related to Proto-Germanic *funstiz (fist) and *fingraz (finger).
