QUEEN

indo-european queen woman wife kvinna zona icon

Queen means simply and literally "a woman".

In Sanskrit the word जनि (jáni, džani) means a "woman, wife, birth, production, a kind of fragrant plant, mother, life, birthplace"

It sounds very similar to Polish "żeni się" meaning "a man takes a woman for a wife". It also sounds almost exactly the same as Gurani language "ژەنی‎ (žanī)".

If we change Germanic Centum "K" to Satem "S" we get in the result Old Norse: "kona" --> "sona" being equal to Slavic "žona". What is even more interesting is that it also becomes equal to "Centum" Tocharian B word "śana".
