Janjaweed - Wikipedia
Etymology. The origin of the word Janjaweed is unclear. It has been translated into English as "devils on horseback" from the Arabic words جن jinn "jinn, demon" and أَجَاوِيد ʾajāwīd "horses".Other sources suggest its origin comes from the Persian word جنگوی jangavi, meaning "warrior", or a portmanteau of three words: جَن jan, after English "gun"; jinn; and ʾajāwīd.
