Etymology

The root is from Proto-Indo-European *dyew- (sky) (whence also Latin dīēs). Cognate with Ancient Greek Ζεύς (Zeus), Hittite 𒅆𒍑 (sius), Sanskrit द्यु (dyú). The nominative Iuppiter comes from a vocative combined with Proto-Indo-European *ph₂tḗr (father) (whence also Latin pater), and as such is cognate to Umbrian 𐌓𐌄𐌕𐌀𐌐𐌖𐌈 (iupater).
