*k̑érberos > sarvarā > Kérberos
This name is a Latinized version of the Ancient Greek “Kérberos (Κέρβεροσ),” which may be related to the Sanskrit word “sarvarā,” used as an epithet of one of the dogs of “Yama”, which in turn derives from a Proto-Indo-European word “*k̑érberos,” meaning “spotted.” In Greek and Roman Mythology, Kerberos is a multi-headed hound (usually three-headed) which guards the gates of the underworld to prevent those who have crossed the river Styx from ever escaping.
