Number: 76
Root: an-1
English meaning: male or female ancestor
German meaning: `Bezeichnung für männlichen oder weiblichen Ahnen'
General comments: Lallwort
Material: Arm. han `Großmutter', gr. ἀννίς μητρὸς ἤ πατρός μήτηρ Hes., vgl. Inschr. ἀνώ; lat. anna f. `Pflegemutter', nach Ausweis illyr. EN ῎Ανα, ῎Αννύλα, Annaeus usw., sowie messap. illyr. ana = πότνια illyr. Herkunft (W. Schulze KZ. 43, 276 = Kl. Schr. 214, Krahe IF. 46, 183 f.); vgl. weiterhin lat. anus, -ūs `altes Weib', auch den Namen der Göttin Anna Perenna.

    Ahd. ano, mhd. ane, an, ene, nhd. Ahn `Großvater, Urgroßvater, Ahn'; ahd. ana, mhd. ane `Großmutter, Urgroßmutter, Ahne'. Deminutivbildungen sind: altn. Āli (*anilo), ags. Anela, ahd. Anelo Personennamen; mhd. enel `Großvater, Enkel'. Ferner ahd.eninchil, mhd. enichlīn, nhd. Enkel (`der kleine Ahn'). Bei den Indogermanen wurde der Enkel als Abbild oder Ersatz des Großvaters betrachtet; vgl. gr. ᾽Αντίπατρος. Gegen diese von W. Schulze KZ. 40, 409 f. = Kl. Schr. 67 f. vertretene Ansicht wendet Hermann, Nachr. d. Ges. d. Wiss. zu Göttingen, Phil.-hist. Klasse 1918, 215 f., ein, daß bayr. enl, änl, österr. ǣnl, ānl usw. die Bedeutung `Großväterchen' und `Enkel' tragen und man es hier mit der gleichen Erscheinung zu tun hat wie bei nhd. Vetter (ursprüngl. `des Vaters Bruder', dann auch `des Bruders Sohn'); die Anrede wird vom Großvater an den Enkel zurückgegeben. Diese ältere Auffassung (vgl. die Literatur bei Hermann aaO.) ist beachtenswert.

    Preuß. ane `alte Mutter'; lit. anýta `Schwiegermutter'.

    Hitt. an-na-aš `Mutter'; ḫa-an-na- (ḫannaš) `Großmutter', lyk. χñ̃na ds.

    Wohl mit Recht stellt M. E. Schmidt KZ. 47, 189 arm. aner `Vater der Frau' hierzu. Es liegt eine ähnliche Bildung vor wie in lat. matertera `Mutterschwester', cymr. ewythr `Oheim', acorn. euitor; bret. eontr (urkelt. *aventro-, s. Pedersen Kelt. Gr. I 55). *anero- hätte die ursprüngliche Bedeutung `etwas wie der Ahn'.

    Unsicher ist ahd. hevianna, woraus umgebildet mhd. hebamme. Da ahd.*anna `Weib' nicht zu belegen ist, nimmt Kluge11 238 Entstehung aus *hafjan(d)jō `die Hebende' an, woraus die späteren Umdeutungen entstanden seien. Doch vgl. PBB. 30, 250.

K. Reshetnikov's notes: Not LO, but LU (i.e. LL)! Cf. Komi un'e 'aunt' - can't the Mansi form with -u- be a Komi loan? Note the similarity between the Komi and Selk. forms (a secondary contact relation can't be excluded). On the other hand, NeO n'eje 'mother's younger sister' (mentioned in UEW as a cognate of the Uralic words in question) is unclear - it doesn't correspond to Selk. with regard to vocalism. Contrary to UEW, Permic *an'V > Komi Pm., Wi. an' 'Schwiegermutter (der Frau), Mutter des Mannes', Vg. an' 'Frau', Udm. Ye. an'ɨ 'Hanfgarbe', Mans.

'Schwiegermutter', -ány (=ān') in le-ány 'Tochter, Mädchen', literally 'small woman' (le- < Ugr. *lVjV 'klein, jung') and apparently Mord. E -an'a in niz-an'a 'mother-in-law', M an'a-ka 'elder sister' should be kept apart from the forms listed above (see URAET 1802). Besides, Komi Ud. un'e 'Tante' is also likely to belong to another etymon (URAET 1801).
