Old English heorot “hart, stag, male deer,” from Proto-Germanic *herut- (cf. Old Saxon hirot, Old Frisian and Dutch hert “stag, deer,” Old High German hiruz, Old Norse hjörtr, German Hirsch “deer, stag, hart”), perhaps from PIE root *ker- “horn” (see horn (n.)). Now, a male deer after its fifth year.

(Heb. ‘ayal), a stag or male deer. It is ranked among the clean animals (Deut. 12:15; 14:5; 15:22), and was commonly killed for food (1 Kings 4:23). The hart is frequently alluded to in the poetical and prophetical books (Isa. 35:6; Cant. 2:8, 9; Lam. 1:6; Ps. 42:1).
