Etymology[edit]

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 πύργος (púrgos, fortress).[1] By another theory, the city's name comes from Latin burgus (tower, fortress), or Gothic 𐌱𐌰𐌿𐍂𐌲𐍃 (baurgs, consolidated walled village).[2]
