There are several possible origins for the name of the city, which is similar to Burgos, a city in Spain. When the city was founded, the inhabitants of the surrounding country got into the fortified village, named "pyrgos" or "burgos", which is Latin for "tower" or "fortress" (see: Burgus).[1] By another theory, the city's name comes from Latin, or a Gothic name meaning signified consolidated walled villages (Gothic "baurgs").[2]
