Proto-Slavic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From earlier *bojan- (compare Ancient Greek βοάνος ‎(boános), attested in the 10th century), a borrowing from a Turkic language, probably from Avar bajan ‎(ruler of the horde), the title of the Avars' khagan misinterpreted as a name (compare similar development in *vodzь), from Proto-Turkic *bāj ‎(rich, noble). The Turkic word is usually considered a borrowing from an Iranian language, from the same lexical root whence also Proto-Slavic *bogъ ‎(god), but some consider it inherited from Proto-Altaic.

  1. (South Slavic) master, ruler, lord, ban (title)
