Etymology of the
Meaning of the baby name BAGATUR.
BAGATUR (Багатур). Tartar
name meaning "the hero." Also spelled Baghatur
and Bagatyr. Usage:
... The very words of the
ancient Bulgarian tongue which have come down to us were interpreted,
now as Slav, now as Tartar, now as Finnish. Thus the term αλοβογοτουρ is
explained by Tomaschek as = Turkish, ala = shepherd and bagatur = hero,
and by the patriotic Russian Professor Ilovaisky as compounded of
two Russian words, bog and tur, and so on to the end of
the chapter, each scholar finding exactly what he had himself brought to
the study of the subject... (Shade of the Balkans, Dillon, 1904)
