Origin of lion
- Middle English from Old French from Latin leō leōn- from Greek leōn of Semitic origin lbℵ in Semitic roots
From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition
- From Old French lion, from Latin leÅ, (genitive: leÅnis), from Ancient Greek Î»ÎÏ‰Î½ (leÅn), likely a borrowing from a Semitic language; compare Proto-Semitic *labiÊ¾-. Many ancient languages possessed similar words for lion, including Akkadian ð’Œ¨ (labbu) . It is unclear as to who borrowed the word from whom, though the ultimate source is likely non-Indo-European.
