Dune

Dune is an English word referring to a sand hill formed by the wind in deserts or near coastal regions; the word itself comes from Middle Dutch dūne, which itself could possibly be derived from Gaulish dunum (hill) or from Proto-Celtic dunom (stronghold, rampart). It derives from PIE *dʰewh₂- (to close, finish, come full circle).

Origin: Proto-Indo-European
