Abstract:
  • The article examines 25 Bulgarian surnames, which are best analyzed when their Romanian counterparts are taken into account. The twenty appellatives, on which they are based, form several semantic groups, and nearly half of them represent names according to occupations such as барзар “cabman”, габровян “merchant of products from Gabrovo”; *гьоладжия “fiddler” and others. Although nearly half of the discovered bases are not entirely Romanian, they show a number of features that give reason for these surnames to be analyzed as a Wallachian component in the Bulgarian anthroponymy. The majority of them were brought from the population in process of migration from Wallachia to the south of the Danube. And there are those for which we do not find relevant surnames north of the Danube, but we have for their stems near congeners in the Romanian vocabulary. They are formed in the Wallachian/Aromanian language/dialect south of the Danube and should be considered as a Wallachian/ Aromanian component of the Romanian anthroponymy.
  • Cet article analyse 25 noms de famille bulgares mis en évidence lorsque leurs correspondants roumains sont pris en considération. Les vingt appellatifs dont on part forment plusieurs groupes sémantiques, presque la moitié en représentant des noms donnés en fonction des métiers, tels барзар «charretier», габровян «commerçant de produits de Gabrovo»; *гьоладжия «musicien» et d’autres. Bien que presque la moitié des bases découvertes ne soient pas intégralement roumaines, elles présentent toute une série de caractéristiques qui justifient l’analyse de ces noms de famille comme composante valaque dans l’anthroponymie bulgare. La plupart ont été apportées par la population en processus de migration de la Valachie au sud du Danube. Et ce sont toujours pour elles qu’on ne retrouve pas de noms de famille pertinents au nord du Danube, mais qu’on a pour leurs bases des congénères proches dans le vocabulaire roumain. Elles se sont formées dans la langue/le dialecte valaque/aroumain au sud du Danube et devraient être considérées une composante valaque/aroumaine de l’anthroponymie roumaine.
