PCelt. *omiyo- ‘copper, bronze’ < PIE. *HoHmo- 'raw'. "We may assume that the meaning 'copper' is earlier... A derivation of *omiyo- from *omo- 'raw' appears formally possible, but the semantic connection is weak. Was 'copper' conceived of as 'raw metal' in contrast to iron, which is melted at much higher temperatures?" (RM).
