This form of the Afro-Asiatic word for “moon” seems to reflect Berber ''ōyær'' (Ghadamsi), Wargla ''yur'' (Ayt Seghrouchen), Shilḥa ''ay:ur'', Greek transliteration Ιαρε (Ιεραχ), and Coptic ''ouwh'', ''ioh'', more than Egyptian ''iˁḥ'' “moon” (∥''inḥ'' “surround, enclose”), Hebrew ''yareaḥ'', Amorite ''Iariḫ'', Ugaritic ''yrg'', ''yrḫ'' (*''wrḫ''), and Akkadian ''warḫu''.
