EtymologyEdit

Originally meaning "glutton (one who eats a lot)", from Proto-Finnic *ahma. Related to dialectal Estonian ahm, Ingrian ahmo, Karelian ahmo, ahmoi, Ludian ahmo, Votic ahmia (~ ahmia) and more distantly to Northern Sami vuosmmis (from Proto-Samic *vuosvēs).

The meaning "wolverine" is possibly a calque from other European languages such as German Vielfraß and Latin gulo.
