Roots

TheIE “root”of  FAWN (young of ruminants) is allegedly from an Indo-European “root” dh(i) meaning “to suck.”  Old French faon and feon are thought to derive somehow from Latin fetus, pregnant, offspring. See FETUS.  Fetus is close to בת   BaT or BHaT, daughter, offspring. And a source with better sound, and a sense that doesn’t suck is offered by  בן BeN or BHeN (child, offspring). The softer bilabial of Bhen and Bhat are in verses like Exodus 21:31.

Bet-Noon is specifically used for the young of ruminants in Leviticus 4:3 (heifer) and Psalms 29:6 (a horned creature poorly translated as “unicorn”).
