KK, Gr. αἴξ 'goat' & Arm. ayc 'goat'. These appear to be cognates, but their further etymology remains unclear. "If the connection is correct, the word could be PIE. However, Skt. ajá- 'goat' looks similar, but is formally deviant. This could suggest that Avestan, Greek and Armenian borrowed the word from a common source, perhaps Anatolian." (RB)
Robert Beekes (with the assistance of Lucien van Beek). "αἴξ" in: Etymological Dictionary of Greek. Indo-European Etymological Dictionaries Online. Edited by Alexander Lubotsky. Brill, 2014. Brill Online. March 4, 2014. < http://iedo.brillonline.nl/dictionaries/lemma.html?id=3208 >, Baltic words meaning 'skin, hide, leather'. KK relates these to Latv. āzis ‘male goat’. Compare Ru. kozá ‘goat’, kóža ‘skin’ & Skt. ajā ‘female goat’, ajínam ‘skin’.
