Origin of danube

Latin Dānubius, from Proto-Celtic *Danuvios (compare Welsh river name Donwy), from Pre-Celtic *Dāne/ou̯i̯os, from Proto-Indo-European (“run, flow”); akin to Latin fōns (“spring”), Persian دنیدن (danīdan, “to hasten, run”), Ossetian дон (don, “water”), Sanskrit धन्वति (dhanvati, “it flows, runs”).
