1. mane 与 mount、mountain (see Latin montem (nominative mons) "mountain") 同源，参见: (see Old English mene "necklace," Latin monile "necklace").
2. mane 的含义与颈部、颈背、项链相关，是因为颈部被认为是从躯干中伸出、突出出来的东西，所以由此有了颈部、颈背相关的含义。
3. ma + ne => 马呢？ => 马的鬃毛呢？被哪个傻逼给剪了。
- mane: [OE] Mane goes back to a prehistoric Germanic *manō, which also produced German mähne and Dutch mane. Related forms such as Swedish manke ‘neck’, Irish muin ‘nape of the neck’, archaic Welsh mwn ‘neck’, Latin monīle ‘necklace’, and Sanskrit manyā- ‘nape of the neck’ suggest that historically ‘neck’ is the primary, ‘neck-hair’ a secondary meaning of this word-family. It has been speculated that it goes back ultimately to Indo-European *men- ‘project’ (source of English eminent, prominent, etc).
