Comments: It is difficult to separate this word from the homonym *ondo 'joint' (q.v.). Both of these words have been influenced by Romance words such as Span. hondo 'bottom, depth, deep', and some blending has taken place. Cf. also Bsq *ɦonda-r̄ 'sand, dregs', which etymologists have often confused with either or both types of *ondo and Span. hondo. The compounds shown (of which there are many more) involve the elements *begi-t- 'eye' and *a=dar̄ 'horn'.
