Name Root:
bor ağ / ağan > bóra > Boréas (būrah)
This name derives from the Ancient Greek “bóra (μπόρα) Boreas (Βορέας) Borrhás (Βορρᾶς),” meaning “shower, a storm, thunderstorm.” Boreas was the Greek god of the cold north wind and the bringer of winter. His name meant “North Wind” or “Devouring One.” Zephyrus, in Latin Favonius, is the Greek god of the west wind. In Turkish “Bor” is linked to the word “grey” and another meaning “a sudden and rapid flow of the tide in certain rivers and estuaries which rolls up as a wave; an eagre” plus “ağ / ağan” means “crying, flow,” linked to the concept of the Greek “rain, shower.” The full meaning indicates a natural disaster, a god crying which moves waters and the winds. The meaning is a sum of simple concepts that describe an event inauspicious. In Crimean Tatar, among others, the word “boran” means “storm.” Furthermore, in Persian “būrah,” it means “sugar,” but also understood as sugar falling from the sky “snow or rain.”
