Etymology

The origin of this word is unclear. Some derive it from Proto-Indo-European *lāp- (cow), but the only basis for this reconstruction is the Albanian cognate. Others consider it related to Gothic 𐌻𐌰𐌼𐌱 (lamb) (cf. German Lamm, English lamb), perhaps even a borrowing from a Germanic language. Yet others suggest that it comes from a putative Proto-Baltic *luop-, from Proto-Indo-European *leu- (to cut off, to separate) with an extra -p, with the meaning evolving from “cut off” > “to hide, to skin, to flay” (cf. Lithuanian lùpti (to skin, to peel)) > “hide, skin, fur, something made of fur” (cf. Hittite lupanni (hat)) > “animal body part” (cf. Old Church Slavonic лъбьнъ (lŭbĭnŭ), Serbo-Croatian lùbina (skull)) > “animal.” The initial meaning of lops, still found dialectally, was more restricted, covering only goats, sheep and maybe cows. In the 18th and 19th century, the meaning was extended to almost all animals (= dzīvnieks), and later again restricted to its current range. Cognates include Lithuanian lúopas, lúobas (clumsy person or animal), Albanian lopë (cow) (< *lāpā).
