Glyph origin

Pictogram (): ? ("goat, sheep or feathers") + ? ("person") - a person with a headdress of feathers or ram's horn; sometimes considered as an ideogrammic compound ().

Etymology

From Proto-Sino-Tibetan *mway ("beautiful, well, perfectly") (STEDT).

According to Schuessler (2007), cognate with Mizo mawi ("beautiful, lovely"), Jingpho moi ("perfectly, beautifully") as well as Karbi me- ("be good") and Jingpho cha mai ("good"); the former two items from *moy "beautiful" and the latter from *may "good, well", which were two roots reconstructed separately by Benedict (1972).
