Urheimat and Ur - Original Homelands

The word Urheimat is a German word (of the Uralic linguistic family of languages) which is a compound of Ur- "primitive, original" and Heimat "home, homeland" and is a linguistic term that denotes the homeland of the speakers of a proto-language.

Ur is the "original homeland" of Semitic Abraham.

The word Ur, in both a Uralic and a Semitic language, means "original".
