EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Central-Philippine *áyaw ("to leave, redistribute") + -an (ayawanaywanewaniwan). Attested in the Doctrina Christiana as œvan, most likely reflecting ewan. Cognates with Mansaka ayaw (to leave) and Cebuano ayaw (to cry (as a child) when left behind). See also ayaw and aywan. An alternate etymology from Panganiban (1972) posits it to be from iwi +‎ -an.
