Comments: ЭСТЯ 4, 219, Лексика 157. The Turkic form is analysed as 'road panther' which is most probably a folk etymology (under the influence of the borrowed bars 'panther'): even if one takes jol with a secondary late attested meaning 'line, stripe', shortness of -o- in Turkm. contradicts the etymology (*jōl 'road' has a long vowel).
