Etymology

edit

From Proto-Central-Philippine *áyaw ("to leave, redistribute") + -an (ayawanaywanewaniwan). Cognates with Mansaka ayaw (to leave) and Cebuano ayaw (to cry (as a child) when left behind). See also ayaw. Doublet of aywan. An alternate etymology from Panganiban (1972) posits it theoretically to be from iwi (taking care of a domestic animal in behalf of the owner) +‎ -an.

Attested in the Doctrina Christiana as œvan, written in Baybayin as ᜁᜏ (iwa), most likely reflecting ewan or eywan. In the book, the ⟨œ⟩ character (possibly an ⟨æ⟩ character) was sometimes written in Baybayin as (a). Hence, the word can also reflect aywan.
