EtymologyEdit

According to Orel "A difficult word without any reliable explanation". Others have suggested Proto-Albanian *ghemen, from Proto-Indo-European *ǵem- (to marry), cognate to Ancient Greek γαμέω (gaméō, marry), Avestan 𐬰𐬁𐬨𐬀𐬊𐬌𐬌𐬀 (zāmaoiia, brother of son-in-law), Sanskrit जामा (jāmā, daughter-in-law) but with insurmountable semantic problems.
