Thanks for the response JHP,
I spoke to someone from Montenegro a while back and we had a short talk about Katunska. With out me mentioning it he stated that the name was probably derived from the Albanian "katund" which stands for village. I was really interested in the ethnic composition and the relations between the groups. He told me that there is a mix in the region of Montenegrin and Albanian, but he did not know any thing in great detail. I find Montenegro very interesting since it's culture is probably the closest thing to Albanian culture in the Balkans and our histories are more often than not interwoven. Again thanks for the reply.
