Somalia

Etymology

edit

An Egyptian exonym deriving from Coptic ϣⲙⲟⲩⲗ (šmoul, left side, east), Somalia being east of Egypt. Compare Proto-Semitic *šimāl-, Hebrew שְׂמֹאל (s'mól, left), Akkadian 𒆏 (šumēlum, left side), Aramaic סְמָלָא (səmālā) / ܣܡܠܐ (semmālā, left side), Ugaritic 𐎌𐎎𐎀𐎍 (šmảl). ϣⲙⲟⲩⲗ translates Ancient Egyptian jꜣbt, of same meaning. The name also has many quaint folk-etymologies. See w:Somali_people#Etymology.
