I will translate some of the Celtic names for you.>

Biroe-VirodunumUirodunum = "Men's/Hero's [uiro] Fort"


Ravi> Could Biroe and Viro not be cognates ??

In Sanskrit/ Hindi we find Vir ( hero) also often spelt as "Bir" and
used as a suffix,

so the name "Balambir / Balambeer " can be found as Balamvir, both
meaning "Strong Hero ".

In the plural - Viro – nh ( with a slight n).
