thinking about how the swedish word for 'lynx' is 'lodjur', 'lynx-animal'. like thanks, really cleared that up there

the various germanic words for lynx apparently come from a root meaning 'bright' or 'light', i assume because lynxes used to glow in the dark before lightpollution became widespread
