* The origin is uncertain. Usually connected with Old Armenian _բոց_ (bocʿ). * Some connect this along with _faciēs_, _facētus_, _fax_, from Proto-Indo-European _*bʰeh-_ (“to shine”). Cognate with Ancient Greek _φαίνω_ (phaínō, “to shine”). And in turn this with Proto-Indo-European _*bʰeh₂-_ (“to say”), whence Latin _for_, Ancient Greek _φημί_ (phēmí), _φωνή_ (phōnḗ).
