Further etymology uncertain. Most probably a loanword of eastern origin (cf. Skt. puṇḍarīka- ‘tiger'),. Most probably a loanword of eastern origin (cf. Skt. puṇḍarīka- ‘tiger'), though there is a widespread folk etymology which analyses the word as a compound of Gr. πᾶς 'all' & θήρα'wild beasts, that which is hunted, game'. A third possibility is suggested by Beekes: “if connected with πάρδαλις, one might consider original *πάρθηρ, which was changed to πάνθηρ by folk-etymological association with πᾶν 'all' and θηράω v. 'to hunt'." (RB)
