Note
Matasovic regards Alb. lopë f. 'cow' and Latv. lops, lùops m. 'farm animal' as cognates of the Celtic 'calf' words. For Karulis, the etymology is unresolved and other possibilities are proposed, notably that the Baltic word may have been borrowed from a Germanic language (cf. Goth. lamb 'lamb').
