The English word Cloves is evidently a modification of the French Cloux, as heard in Cloux de girofle.

Chidani, name of the river of Buitenzorg, called also Chi Sidani. The natives may have given the river the name of Widani which would be the feminine of Widana, as flowing past and from their ancient Capital of Pajajaran, and being the main river of this part of the country. For the meaning of Wi, see voce. Dan, C. 255/6 a gift, adonation, an offering; Paddy; clothing to cover the Pudendum muliebre; the name of a tree (Calyptranthes) of which there are several species and yield a fruit much eaten by the natives. Dana, C. 256, riches, wealth, property, possessions; people, mankind; birth, origin. Chi Sidani; the Si may be the ordinary Sunda preposition which see: and in this case prefixed to the feminine of Dana = Dani. Sidani, she who gives wealth, prosperity, by inundating the rice fields in the neighbourhood of the old capital of Pajajaran, where tradition relates that the first Sawahs were made, and it will be seen above that one of the acceptations of Dan is Paddy, and in this sense Chi-Si-Dani would be the river which gives or has, produces or appertains to Paddy. The Hindu people who cut the Sanscrit inscription on the rock on Jambu, at Pasir Koléangkak, might have introduced the system of irrigated rice-lands, and called so large a river as the one in question Si Dani, or her of the Paddy, personifying the river which gave the water, as the grain-producer or Ceres. Dhani, C. 298, is a rich and opulent man, and Chidhani or Chi-Si-Dani would be the river typical of opulence either from irrigating the land or from admitting foreign traders at its mouth. (Dânin, Nominative case dânî, would be possessing, affording gifts. Fr).
Chiduh, spittle, saliva.
Chiduhan, to spit upon with contempt.
Chidurian, The name of the great river of Jasinga. It rises very far back amongst the Kěndang mountains, and discharges itself into the sea at Chikando near Tanara. The etymon of the word cannot be Durian, the fruit so called in Malay, Durio Zibethinus as this, in the Country through which it flows, is called Kadu. As however, in the Mountainous part of the Country where it exists, many Sanscrit names are used to designate the objects of nature, as districts and mountains, so also perhaps a Sanscrit origin must be sought for to elucidate its meaning. Dura, C. 282, far, distant, remote. Yā, C. 572 going, proceeding. Ya is the crude form of the verb Yanawa to go, and forms Yanta to go, Yana, going: thus Dura-yana, and with suppression of the final vowel, Dura-yan, would be the river which goes remotely, which has a long course, and which will apply very well to this river which travels, in the early part of its route, through such distant and sequestered mountain ravines. The transition from Dura-yan to Durian or Duriyan with a people who were not conscious of the etymon of the word, would be very easy, and is heard also similarly in Mada-yoni = Madion.

Chikaniki, name of a river which flows from the Gunung Kěndang over the Nanggung and Jambu Estates, into the Chidani. Kaniki is not Sunda, so we are driven to attempt an etymology in Sanscrit. Kanyaka, C. 104, a girl, a maiden. The word is further rendered female by making it termate in i. Chikanyaki = Chikanikī, maiden river. See voce Kaniki. (Kanî means also a girl, Kanika is very small; cf. kana and kanaka (both with the cerebral n) small. Only a form kaniki or kaniki seems not to exist in Sanskrit. Fr.)
