Etymologie[eedit | eedit soorce]

Maist scholars gree that Suiones an the attestit Germanic forms o the name derive frae the same Proto-Indo-European reflexive pronominal ruit, *s(w)e, as the Laitin suus. The wird must hae meant "ane's awn (tribesmen)". In modren Scandinavie, the same ruit appears in wirds such as svåger (brither-in-law) and svägerska (sister-in-law). The same ruit an oreeginal meanin is foond in the ethnonym o the Germanic tribe Suebi, preservit tae this day in the name Schwaben.[21][22][23][24]
