Two words for God are അള്ളാ and പടച്ചോന്.
അള്ളാ obviously is Arabic. (For those interested in Arabic etymology, it comes from അല് + ലാഹ് - the God, the one and only God).
പടച്ചോന് is of mallu origin. It is the contraction of പടച്ചവന് - the one who made everything.
The root is പട, which also means army.
What is the connection between "army" and "to make"?
Now if we were to take the root പട to mean "to arrange", things fall into place. God arranged everything. An army is an arrangement of soldiers. So പട as a root means "to arrange".
Another word related to army is അണി, as in പടയണി. We can also see the root in അണി നിരക്കുക, to assemble. We also see അണി in അണിയുക - to wear - literally, to arrange clothes or ornaments on one's person.
So now, applying the reverse logic, is there a word that means God that has the അണി root in it?
