Dear Sir:

  The greek word monogenes  is a compound of the words mono and genes. Many
scholars say that genes is from ginomai rather than gennao. Other scholar
say that the traditional ethymology from gennao is right.
I think both positions at once can´t be true.
What is the real root?. Is it wrong the meaning only-begotten?.

Best regards
