Etymology[edit]

From Russian Байка́л (Bajkál, Baikal), from Buryat Байгал нуур (Bajgal nuur, Lake Baikal), perhaps ultimately from the Turkic *bāj (rich), and *köl, *(k)ȫl (lake),[1][2] with reference to the abundance of high-quality salmon in the lake. The Turkic origin is rejected by Vasmer.[3] Native Mongolic origins have also been proposed.
