I don't recall where I read it, but I am sure I have seen the name Slavic Vladimer (as opposed to Vladimir) explained as -mer meaning 'great'. As for 'mir', would it be related to Greek ειρήνη meaning 'peace'?

Now, when Slavs use the ending -mir in their names, this might just be a relic of the Germanic names, since in Slavic mir means "peace" or "world" and several names that contain it make no sense if we apply this etymology.
Worthy of further research. A parallel example that could be cited is the Slavic Bogomil as opposed to Greek Theophilus. Which Slavic names are you thinking about? If we use Branimir as an example, it would mean 'peaceful defender', or 'glorious defender' if we use the Germanic definition of the word -mir, but then the latter would make more sense in Slavic as Branislav.

I just read in a dictionary (and also found a similar entry on Wikipedia), that "mir, měr, mierz, myr" could also mean "prestige" in Common Slavic, besides "peace" and "world".

This is what Jordanes said and many finds this questionable as most of his other claims. I don't refute the supposed homeland of Scandinavia but this story comes from Jordanes and he is famous with his made up stories out of nowhere.

Besides that, i wasn't talking about the supposed homeland of Germanic peoples in 10.000 BC. I just said that all the Gothic kings you wrote above and also Theodoric the Great has migrated to Europe from around Crimea, Ukraine, the "very well known and attested" homeland of east Germanic tribes.

No, the word "bey" is written on 7th century Turkic runic stones. Persians doesn't use the title "bey".

Can you elaborate on that point, Onur? Why would a Germanic king want it to look like a yurt? What can you tell us about the nomadic roots Theodoric?
Isn't the picture of his own tomb above clear enough? I can elaborate but i think that would be futile cuz both you and slovak seems like you are obsessed with your own theories and strictly closed to anything which contradicts your own ideas, even if it`s concrete buildings and other archeological findings.

Why would Germanic king wants it to look like yurt? Is this difficult to answer? cuz he was probably living in yurts at earlier times as all other Germanic people before they have been romanized and christianized.

Have you ever read the Norse Sagas and Eddas? They pretty much say the same thing Jordanes wrote about. For instance the Gutasaga among others:

Yes, but that is later history. We're mostly interested in the BC period. You only speak of the time the first Turkic speaking tribes appeared, not the time before them, the time we are interested in mostly.

The theories you present are completely alien to us. I don't know what your sources are. There is nothing I have read in dozens of books on Eastern European, Gothic, Slavic or any other history for that matter that resembles what you speak of. And these are not some fringe books, I'm talking of books written by experts in the field, academics from the most prestigious universities in Europe, Russia and the Middle East. But then again, you would most likely call them liars and frauds and dig something up from whatever source you may find that tries to demonstrate they are wrong. I distrusted authorities when I was young and poorly aware, until I actually read the books and saw what these people actually were talking about. The things you accuse me and SoM of are actually what you are guilty of, at least that is plainly obvious to us. Let me not get into the fact that you openly despise all things Roman and Catholic. With such a bias I'm afraid we here cannot take a word you say seriously. You constantly accuse us of some form of ignorance, yet rarely has it been true. There is nothing I hate more than when people accuse me of not knowing something I actually do know. I can only wonder then what prompted them to make such a false conclusion of me. As if I didn't know how Theodoric the Goths mausoleum looked like? I made a model of the tomb from paper a few years ago for god's sake! We here know most of European history from that period, what we don't know is the pseudohistory you keep posting, from whatever dark hole you continue to pull it out of.

Who is "We"??? How you know from which period everyone prefers to read here? How come you are the one who decides what people interests with and what not??? Ohh, if you claimed this thread specifically for SOM and yourself, then tell me so i don't bother.

Quote:

Nothing i`ve wrote here are theories cuz like you said, i am talking about later history, early medieval times and i am posting pictures of buildings, archeological findings here. You are the one who talk about theories of 10.000 BC, supposed homelands, myths and proto-somethings.

Quote:
I don't know what your sources are. There is nothing I have read in dozens of books on Eastern European, Gothic, Slavic or any other history for that matter that resembles what you speak of.
I can guess that cuz you are so selective about what to read. It`s so obvious that you pick what you like and ignore the ones you don't prefer. Your behavior was so typical in another thread when i wrote about other theories of Mario Alinei which you have ignored and remained silent.

Quote:

When did i do that? I just said that you are strictly closed to the other information if it`s contradicts your ideas.

You are being overly defensive here.

You already knew that? Wow! grats, bravo, clap but you know there are also other people following this forum and i usually don't think about whether people already knows or not when i am gonna post something. This is about discussion, no one indoctrinates anyone here but it seems you are trying to do that.

If you find offensive whenever you read things that you`ve already known, then it`s your inferiority complex and this is your own problem, not mine.

You are being so annoying but i think you already know that. Again, i am posting the real world pictures in this thread but you are the one who keep talking about proto-that, proto-this, 10.000 BC homelands and mythology, yet i am being pseudo here???

You are the one who speaks from that "dark hole" here

I don't see how that poses a problem, by then Turkic peoples had already been influenced by Iranian peoples. I could be wrong, but personally I think it is too similar. The Turkic/Mongol word 'altan' also looks very similar to Indo-European words for 'gold'.

They settled in the regions around the Black Sea some time after they migrated from their original homeland, that is how they became east Germanic. It is only after this period that many of them, like Theodoric, began to move westward.

That is an unnecessary rant borne out of misguided frustration. There's really no need for getting defensive, unless you feel that your own theories are becoming swiss cheese. You make a statement, and then you go all wierd when you are asked to elaborate. What's your problem?

The presenter in the first video link you provided actually says that the Goths weren't nomadic and lived just like the Romans. Where exactly is it stated anywhere that Germanic people lived in yurts?

That is the main misconception you have about me.

Quote:

No one has complained since I started doing it in 2005-ish. If you have knowledge, either use it or teach it. Indoctrination is a bit of rough word however.

I'll past that to the thousands of historians. If I can find them. It is awfully dark in here mind you.

Quote:
Who is "We"???
When I say WE I know exactly who I mean. There are people here on this forum I consider friends and whom I had the pleasure of debating and discussing with for half a decade.
I am quite unsure of what is your purpose here. No one has told me, and you haven't shown. You don't seem to have any interest in Macedonian history except glorifying everything Turkic and criticizing everything Greek and Western.

Ok, thats fine, but you shouldn't complain either if someone refuses to play your game of prof. Slovak with his students.

I didn't get who were the "WE" but now i gotta ask;
Who are you to question my purpose here? Did i ever ask you what a slovak does here? I understood that you like to play a teacher but you wanna be a forum police now?

Hey, I'm just here coz there are interesting things being discussed, I have friends here and I was asked politely to be here. The original reason was that I felt sympathy for the Macedonians and what they had to suffer, plus I was a Pan-Slavist back when I started. That's five reasons I believe. Now I'm not pretending to be a "policeman", I think the moderators are here for that, but I do think that any member has the right to ask questions and investigate the purpose of other members, to see their motives.
