Etymology

From Arabic ذَا(ḏā, this, that). The -n is possibly from hawn (here). (Its deriving from an accusative ending is unlikely since the Arabic pronoun does not have such an ending. But compare xejn (nothing) from Arabic شَيْئاً(šayʾan) for the basic possibility of Maltese reflexes of the indefinite accusative ending.)

dan (feminine din, plural dawn)
