Etymology edit

From Proto-Iranian *āzāta-. Cognate with Avestan 𐬁𐬰𐬁𐬙𐬀 (āzāta, noble), Manichaean Middle Persian [script needed] (ʾʾzʾd /⁠āzād⁠/), and Parthian 𐭀𐭆𐭀𐭕 (ʾzʾt /⁠āzāt⁠/, noble). Akin to Old Armenian ազատ (azat), Georgian აზატი (azaṭi), Iranian borrowings.
Ultimately from the past participle of Proto-Iranian *zan- (to be born), from Proto-Indo-European *ǵenh₁-, originally meaning “born (into the clan)” and, by extension, “noble” and “free”.
