NEBULA

indo-european nebula nebo niebo nabhas naba nef debesis neula amp sky heaven cloud icon

This word mostly means a "cloud" but in Slavic and Celtic languages it means the "sky" or "heaven" (a place where the clouds are, up above in the sky).

Lithuanian "debesis" is very similar to Slovak "nebesia" or Polish "nebiosa" with replaced letter N = "debesia" and "debiosa".

Celtic form "nef" could come from an earlier "nep" like Hittite "ne-e-pí-iš". Following the Grimm's law there is an Old High German "nebul" and modern Dutch "nevel", in which B and P transformed into V or F.
