A lion.

Етимологија[уреди]

From Средњи Енглески lyoun, lion, leon, borrowed from Стари Француски lion, from Латински leō, (accusative: leōnem), from Антички Грчки λέων (léōn). Some argue that it is a borrowing from a Semitic language; however evidence is not clear and the relation with Proto-Semitic *labiʾ- is not solid. Semitic "labi/lavi" could either be a parent term to the Greek one or both could have evolved independently from a now lost root.
