EtymologyEdit

Non-Sino-Vietnamese reading of Chinese (“fifth earthly branch”; SV: thần). Some dictionaries (such as Thiều Chửu's) consider it as Sino-Vietnamese, but Thìn's /-in/ is unlikely to be a Sino-Vietnamese rhyme, compared to the likely one /-ən/ in thần. See also , Mẹo, Ngọ, Mùi.

PronunciationEdit

Proper nounEdit
