Comments: SKE 7, KW 6-7, Лексика 607. Despite Doerfer TMN 2, 96, Щербак 1997, 97, there is no reason for assuming Turk. > Mong., and even less - Mong. > Turk. (despite Rozycki 16). Cf. also Evn. (Okh.) iler 'variegated' ( < *elir ?; see ТМС 1, 312).

Word: о́лово,
Near etymology: оловя́нный, прилаг., укр. о́лово "свинец", блр. во́лово, др.-русск., ст.-слав. олово μόλυβδος (Супр.), болг. оло́во, сербохорв. о̏лово, о̏д олова, словен. оlо̑v, ólovo (Долобко, ZfslPh 3, 131), чеш., слвц. оlоvо, польск. oɫów, в.-луж. wоɫоj, н.-луж. wóɫoj.
Further etymology: Родственно лит. álvas "свинец" (Даукша), лтш. аl̂vа, al̂vs "олово", др.-прусск. alwis "свинец" (но лит., вост., ãlavas заимств. из слав.; см. Буга, ИОРЯС 17, 1, 4). Далее сближают с названиями цветов: д.-в.-н. ёlо "желтый", лат. albus "белый", греч. ἀλφός; см. Траутман, ВSW 7; М.--Э. 1, 69; Фортунатов, AfslPh 4, 580; Перссон 300; Уленбек, РВВ 22, 536 и сл.; Лиден, Stud. 94. Весьма сомнительна мысль о заимствовании из того же источника, откуда греч. μόλυβδος "свинец", родосск. βόλιμος, вопреки Микколе (Ваlt. u. Slav. 41); см. Лиден, там же. Греч. слова вместе с лат. plumbum возводятся к средиземноморскому слову; см. Буазак 644; Сольмсен, Beitr. I, 59 и сл.; Гофман, Gr. Wb. 205.
