Skt. gardabhá- m. 'donkey, ass' < *gordebho -. Literally, the lascivious animal (CDB). The nature of the connection with Tocharian B kercapo* (n.) ‘ass, donkey’ is uncertain. Kercapo may be a very early borrowing from Skt. gardabhá-, either directly or via an Iranian language; or the two may be loanwords from an unknown third language (DA).
