Some names from the Ottoman Thessaly (15th century), specifically in the area/region of Trikala. The time period is 1450s.


Village Gardiki

The increased number of Slavic names is remarkable here.

Nikolas and Dralas Stanisas. The name "Stanisas / Stanisis" is the Slavic name Staniša (IE * steh2-> PSlav * stati> sta-n-). I do not think George R. R. Martin had that name in mind when he coined the name Stannis Baratheon on GoT.

Nikolas Prodanis. The surname is the Slavic name Prodan "sold" (cf. prodati "sell").

Komanitsis Dobroslavos. The name is reminiscent of the surname of the Romanian athlete Nadia Comaneci, while the surname is the well-known Slavic name Dobroslav (OCS dobrŭ > dobros).

Rado's widow Rina. The name "Rados" is just another form of "Rado" (Slavic Rado).

Tanilas groom of Rados. Behind the name "Tanilas" is probably hidden the Slavic name Danilo.

Vlachos and Alexis Raikos, Other than the obvious "Vlachos", the Slavic name Rajko is a variant of Radko / Ratko, as the name Vlajko is a variant of Vladko / Vlatko.

Manolis Pribos. The surname "Pribos" is the Slavic diminutive Pribo of a compound Slavic names in Pribo- / Pribi– (cf. Pribina, Pribislav, Priboj / Pribojević).

Aivanis Prodanis = Ivan or Ivaniš + Prodan (ie. the well-known Croatian tennis player Goran Ivanišević)

Theodoris Milos = Slavic Milo or Miloš.

Stanimeros Toklimis. Slav. Stanimir.

Giovancos Tokaris. The Slavic name Jovanko is a form of Jovan "John" (cf. the female Jovana > Jοvanka).


Village Mavreli/Maureli

Tsoukaras Moumcelas. It is probably the Slavic name Momčilo ("Momotzilas").

Giovanis = Jovan.

Widow [of] Boza. Behind the name "Boza" is probably the name Božo (a diminutive of name like Božidar).

Gionis Zourkos. Behind the name "Gionis" might be the name "Jon" (Jonoski is common surname in Macedonia). "Zourkos" = Zourka/Zhourka is a Vlach surname.
