Etymology

From Proto-Balto-Slavic *damús (house); The irregular d > n change in Baltic is attributed either to dissimilation (in expressions like darīt namu (to make a house)), or to influence from Iranic languages (compare Avestan 𐬥𐬨𐬁𐬥𐬀(nmāna, quarters, house) alongside 𐬛𐬆𐬨𐬁𐬥𐬀(dəmāna), suggesting the existence of an Iranian form *nam-). Another suggestion was that Proto-Baltic *nam- could come from *nm̥- < *dm̥-, the zero grade form of Proto-Indo-European *dṓm. Yet another possibility is the influence of the stem of words like Ancient Greek νέμω (némō, to tend, to distribute, to take to pasture), νομός (nomós, pasture; division, distribution; residence, dwelling). Cognates include Lithuanian nãmas, Old Church Slavonic домъ (domŭ), Belarusian дом (dom), Bulgarian дом (dom), Russian дом (dom), Ukrainian дім (dim), Czech dům (genitive domu), Polish dom, Sanskrit दम (dáma), Old Armenian տուն (tun), Ancient Greek δόμος (dómos), Latin domus.
