Remarks 'Toothed', i.e., with dentition, from prehistoric Germanic 'tanthuz', i.e., tooth, (same source as Latin 'dens', Greek 'odon', Welsh 'dant) from prehistoric Indo-European 'ed-', i.e., to eat (p. 536 in Ref. 11979); 'herring', from Old English 'haering', i.e., the gray fish, from prehistoric West Germanic 'kheringgaz', i.e., 'kher' = English 'hoar', i.e., silvery gray color of herring (p. 281 in Ref. 11979).
