Etymology

edit

From Proto-Germanic *arbijǭ, feminine form of masculine *arbijô, whence arfi. Cognate with Gothic 𐌰𐍂𐌱𐌾𐍉 (arbjō, heiress), feminine form of Gothic 𐌰𐍂𐌱𐌾𐌰 (arbja, heir). The loss of -j- in words of this class is common but not universal; see goði ((pagan) priest, chieftain) with feminine form gyðja (priestess; goddess).
