Swantewit and *baija-ri:k
From: Steve Woodson
My apologies for touching on
this subject again but I've had PC problems and couldn't respond.
I relied on my only reference to
Swantewit as "Swanwhite" and you all have shown me that there is indeed a Slavic
basis for the name. Thanks.
Thanks to Piotr for showing a
possible Germanic basis for Boiorix, *baija-ri:k. In a historical
atlas that I have it shows the early Bavarians as Bajuvars. Is this
possibly from the same root?
