Sorry, no etymologies found.
Starting with DNA surrounded by lipid vesicles and DNA binding proteins, a double membrane may spontaneously self-assemble around the DNA, a process which happens at every division in telophase.

The process I am referring to is similar to the formation of nuclear pores after telophase.
V. Proof that entrance of a newly ruptured end of a chromosome into a telophase nucleus can initiate activations of previously silent genomic elements
Thus, a newly ruptured end of the chromosome again entered each telophase nucleus.
There are clear distinctions in comportment of ends of chromosomes on entering telophase nuclei.
And this will occur regardless of the initial distance in a telophase nucleus that separated the ruptured ends.
Mechanical rupture of this bridge as the spindle elongated would introduce a single broken end into the telophase nucleus, as illustrated in a to d, Fig. 1.
This, I thought could prevent the chromosome from being included in either telophase nucleus.
The entrance into a telophase nucleus of a single broken end of a chromosome
