EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Italic *senkairos, from Proto-Indo-European *sem- (confer Latin simplex, and Sanskrit सम (sama, whole, together)) and *ḱer- (grow) (confer Sanskrit किर् (kir, pour out)). According to De Vann, the second part of the compound derives from the unattested adjective *caerus found in the first part of caerimōnia.
