Kosova 1452-1480 - Ottoman Register

Thanks for sharing!

Question
Just to show you an example such as the village 'Vokshiq' from 1480 which was somewhere in the Western Kosovo / Peja region, might possibly be modern Voksh or more north, these were Albanians going by their name 'Voksh' but all bore Serbian names or Christian names except for one:

Nikolla son of Bozhidar
Gjurko Popi
Vukashin son of Brajan
Vukiq son of Novak
Nikolla son Vuksan
Dimitri son of Dabzhiv
Vuku son of Radonja
Stepan son of Radic
Vukashin son of Rados
Jovan Siromah
Vuk son of Vedak
Nikolla son of Jovan
Stepan son of Vukashin
Stepan son of Vuk
Bojca son of Vuk
Bosa his brother
Radic son of Gjura
Gjurashin son of Radic
Radash son of Radosav
Radosna son of Radon



I might not of translated these Slavic names 100% correct but you get the picture.
Thanks for sharing!

Have you tested Y-DNA yet??
 
I will PM you my Y-DNA.

Anyway, Vokshiq had one Albanian name which I did not post. A village just having one single Albanian name and the rest non-Albanian names and most of the people might in fact still be Albanians is my theory.
 
I made a mistake in the title , it's meant 1485.
Modern Vraniq https://mapcarta.com/13914152 or possibly Vranoc, https://mapcarta.com/13914120 in 1485, Albanian names bolded:

Some really interesting stuff is when Albanians used names like Gjon, Gjin etc then in the 16th century they would switch over to other type of Albanian names and this happened in villages with Slavic names too. Doesn't say that anyone can came into the village. The people who lived there simply changed names. Lubizhde had majority Slavic but then Albanian. Fshaj also majority Slavic and then Albanian. Same thing in Gjakove . Rogova Slavic and then they became Islamized. And villages which we know were Albanian like Gjinoc, Caparc, Crnca, Novake, Magjerci , Shpenadi , they all bore Slavic names or non-Albanian names even in the 16th century except for Magjerci
 
These are some of the villages in the Plains of Dukagjin (an area roughly between Peja and Prizren) that I have identified that were Albanian in the 1400's-1500's register or that we know were Albanian

Mazrek, Prizren
Gjonaj, Prizren
Shpenadi, Prizren
Novake, Prizren
Magjerci, Prizren
Gjinoc, Prizren
Crnca, Prizren
Caparc, Prizren
Celina, Prizren
Mamusha, Prizren
Medvec, Prizren
Lubizhde, Prizren
Zojz, Prisren
Ratkovac
Ujemire
Kojushe
Milaj
Dujake
Zhur
Planeje
Gorozhub
Fshaj
Nivokaz
Vraniq
Romaje
Goden
Gerqine
Zym
Meje
Botushe
Brekoc
Junik
Dobrosh
Korenice
Shishman
Ponoshec
Voksh
Kryshec
Ramun
Vogove
Firza
Raca
Smaq
Ujz
Dol
Plancor
Berjah
Smolice
Popoc
Stubell
Zhube
Moglice
Lubizhda e hasit
Bishtazhin
Krajk
Damjan
Kushovac/Kushavec
Guske
Rugove
Lipovac
Radoste
Sarosh



Prizren (1500's Albanian)
Gjakova (1500's Albanian)
Peja (1500's Albanian)

The registers indicates this area was inhabited by Albanians.

There are more. But I am done for now with this topic but some really interesting stuff. Prizren, Peja and Gjakova were Albanian too in the 16th century.

Some suggestions:

In Lunik/Junik

MENKU
Dejan, son of Menku
Mihail, son of Menku
Menku son of Dimitri
Menku Siromah
Pepa, son of Menku
Menku, Menkshi, etc, should be considered as Albanian. You may contact Mihalis Ntinopoulous for a better explanation. There is a huge presence of Menku in the registers of the other areas.
Nenko, son of Merka
Merka too should be studied more.
Bardo, son of Bardash - Both Illyrian/Dardanian names, should be kept in a different folder.

GJURA
Nenko, son of Gjurin(Gurin)
Vasil, son of Gjura
Gjura, son of Nenko (In Botusha below)
Gjura, son of Tomeniku (Botusha)
Gjura, son of Daba? (Botusha)
Leka, son of Gjura (Plakani)
Gjura is mostly in presence of Albanian names. Still in presence as a surname in many areas, especially Kukes.

TOLA
Gjon Tola
Kola Tola
Mica Tola
Pepa Tola
Albanian surname, still in use, mostly in Diber area.


GJORGJ
Gjorgj Siramah (two times) - Albanian

Gjorgj Vlada
Nuja Gjorgj - albanian
Dabzhivi Gjorgj
Nika Gjorgj - albanian
Gjorgj Petri - albanian
Gjorgj Dejan

A very mixed name, but very possibly Albanian, as the name Gjergj is missing, due to different translation from the ottoman.

SIROMAH
Menku Siromah

Gjorgj Siromah (two times)
Gjon Siromah
Stepan Siromah

Tomeniko, son of Ulku

Very good suggestion. Indeed more names were probably Albanian such as Gjura possibly and Merksha too

Merksha (possibly), Pepa, Gjura, Muriq, Tola etc could be considered Albanian too . Names like Stepan, Nikolla, David, Dimitri etc are just Christian names.
 
Gjura is a Slavic name possibly but was used by Albanians. I don't know if this village was posted in this thread but the village Uqe in Istog in the north of Kosovo in the year 1485 had Albanian names too.

''lia brother of Marin, Dimitri son of Gjon, Gjon brother of Andrija, Gjura son of Gjon, Bora son of Gjin, Bardo brother of Ilia, Gjon brother of Todor''

I would love to spend more time to find out where all these villages or unidentified villages might be today but I got other things to do. You probably wont see me much on the forum. Good bye.

In fact village Nika are mostly Christian names. Gjini is an Albanian name. Marin was used by Albanians and Pavli too and are Christian names I believe.
All slavic names with slavic nicknames - Siromah poor which indicates the village was Slavic speaking as Turks didnt “translate” the nicknames.


And yet you claim is Albanian same thing repeats in the thread on all posts, amazing.

Most of these villages are Albanians buddy, they bore these type of names in the 15th century then they bore other type of Albanian names in the 16th century which covers much more villages and shows an overwhelming majority Albanian population, including the towns. I will make a thread about that later, there are of course much more villages in the 15th century too. And many names that weren't marked that were Albanians, and Albanians also bore Slavic names, just look at how the brother or son would have anAlbanian name and the father a Slavic or Christian or vice versa. Slavic names are almost non existant in many of these villages in the next register which covers many other villages. And some villages in the 15th century that had majority Slavic names in the next register don't have any Slavic names at all. Then of course you also had people with a mix of Slavic and Albanian name such as an Albanian surname and a Slavic first name or vice versa even in the 16th century in the towns and other areas or you had Albos with Slavic names.
