EtymologyEdit

From a previous Proto-Baltic neuter noun *wuolan, from Proto-Baltic *wuol-, from Proto-Indo-European *wēl-, *wōl-, the length grade of the stem *wel- (to turn, to roll, to wind), whence also velt “to roll, to trundle.” The original meaning was therefore “something that turns, rolls,” still visible in the dialectal verb olāt (to roll, to trundle), and in the standard Latvian term olis (round pebble), dialectally also ola. It is possible that Proto-Indo-European *h₂ōwyóm (egg), which would have become *wowan in Proto-Baltic, may have influenced the development of *wuolan into ola. A synonym term pauts was used alongside ola until the beginning of the 20th century, when ola became dominant and replaced it. Cognates include Lithuanian uolà (cliff, rock).[1]
