EtymologyEdit

Illyrian origin; from Proto-Albanian *mala,[1] from Illyrian *mol-on. Vladimir Orel proposed Lithuanian land and Latvian mala (bank, shore) as cognates. Proto-Albanian *mal- reflecing on ancient Balkan toponym Illyrian *Maluntum/*Malontum, *Dimallum,*Malontina, *Maloventum and Dacian Maluesensis.[2][3] Preserved in patroynms, ethnonym malësor (highlander, mountaineer), in toponym (historical and ethnographic region) Malësia (north Albania and Montenegro). In Kosovo (Malishevë, Gjilan, Mališevo, Prizren), in Serbia (Maleševo (Golubac), Maleševo (Rekovac)) and the name of Maleshevo Mountain (North Macedonia and Bulgaria).[4] Gil'Ferding proposed Sanskrit मरु (marú, wilderness, mountain, rock) as a cognate. According to Michel Morvan a common pre-indo-european substrate with Basque malda (slope) and malkor (precipice)[5] (cf. pre-indo-european geonymic root *mal (*mel, *mol); Dravidian மலை (malai, hill, mountain) and Malayalam മല (mala, id)).

La Piana and Huld suggested Old English molda (forehead) and Sanskrit मूर्धन् (mūrdhan, head, top, summit), both derived from *ml̥Hdʰṓ. Also connected to Ancient Greek *μλωθρός (*mlōthrós), μέλαθρον (mélathron, ridgepole), βλαστάνω (blastánō, to sprout, grow). Cf. also Ancient Greek βλωθρός (blōthrós, lofty), Avestan 𐬐𐬀-𐬨𐬆𐬭𐬆𐬜𐬋(ka-mərəδō, demon's head), with a semantic development from ‘head’ > ‘summit’, compare malë (tongue tip, tree top)) > ‘mountain’.
