Bulgarian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Continues Proto-Slavic *bělěgъ, ultimately of Oghur origin, from Proto-Turkic *bil- (to know). Apparently, the Bulgarian term was reanalyzed to fit the Slavic morphology as if from Proto-Slavic *bělъ (white) + -ег (-eg). Cognate with Hungarian bélyeg (post mark), Chuvash палӑк (palăk, sign, symbol), Turkish bilgi (knowledge). Akin to the nickname Бѣлгоунъ (Bělgunŭ) of tzar Ivan Asen I, one of the founders of the Second Bulgarian Tzardom.
