EtymologyEdit

A possible loan relation with Indo-European *ḱr̥h₂nós (horn) (from *ḱerh₂- (horn)) has been suggested. However, it is probably unrelated with Old Chinese (*kraːg, antler) and (*kʷraːŋ, drinking vessel made of animal horn) despite the phonological and semantic resemblance between the three.
