Meaning of the baby name MOMCHIL.


MOMCHIL (Момчил).  Bulgarian name, derived from the vocabulary word momche, meaning "boy, youth."

    "...Every momche who is a worthy descendant of the race that fought to the death at Kossovo—the Field of the Black Bird—is of the comitajia.  We younger fellows are to be comitajia also..." (Best Short Stories of 1918, O'Brien, 1919)

... A number of the Greek, Bulgarian, and Russian horses are as much at home in the air as on the ground.  Dyuk's horse is spoken of as having pinions.  Marko's could soar high into the air and pursue a Vila (a kind of female elf).  Marko's mother's brother Momchil possessed a steed which certainly had wings.  They were of fine gauze or silk, evidently invisible when not used; for when Momchil's faithless wife enters the stable to cripple the animal, she burns them off, and Momchil is none the wiser when he sets forth on his last ride... (Four Essays, Potter, 1917)
