>I read, years ago in a book on the Mediterranean called First Eden [from a TV series by David Attenborough the famous UK media naturalist], that it was named so because of its strategic position on a high rocky outcrop. I assumed this was a French word borrowed from Breton or Gaulish, similar to many such forms known in Celtic, and possibly related to a Basque word.
I suppose this is the word that Celtic derivations of Krakow use. Not to suggest a Celtic monopoly on the bird [!], but if it is connected with corvids then our Bran/Brennus might be responsible, somewhere down the line.
