BRECKO surname; BRCKO town; BREUCI people
Posted by: paolo brecko (ID *****0738) Date: June 11, 2003 at 14:32:36

My interest is to know if the toponym of Brcko town in Bosnia may be related to the pre-roman people of BREUCI (roman language) or BREUKOI (ancient greek language), people or tribues settled around the river Sava between actual Zagreb and Beograd and where is today the territory of BRCKO town.
I have found that Roman Emperor subjugated the Breuci some year after Christ and take them in cohortes to England to fight and to build the Adrian's Wall.
Then, the Romans displaced the Breuci along the river Rhine in Germany.
I saw a file about the town of Breckeneim near Wiesbaden, founded by a man named Brecko, that seems confirm this fact.
This fact may explain the actual diffusion of BRECKO surname in wide part of Europe, and seems also confirm my hipothesis of his commun origin in the ancient people of BREUCI.
Is this ypothesis probable according to semantic and slave liguistic?
What's your mind? I hope in a your desired comment.
Thank you very mutch!
