Glyph origin

Characters in the same phonetic series () (Zhengzhang, 2003) 
Old Chinese
*l'ɯːb
*l'ɯːb

 +  – a pile.

Originally as , with (jīng) on top. Shuowen commented that the shape change was promoted by emperor of the short-lived Xin Dynasty, who deemed the use of three "suns" () in this character too empowering - compared to three "fields" ().

Etymology

Cognate with (“lined dress”), Tibetan ལྟབ་པ (ltab pa, to fold, gather up, to lay or put together), ལྡེབ་པ (ldeb pa, to bend round or back, to turn round, to double down), ལྡབ་པ (ldab pa, to fold up, repeat, do again).
