Etymology[edit]

From Latin Histria, from Ancient Greek Ίστρια (Ístria), named after Ἱστρών (Histrṓn) (ἔθνος (éthnos)), the ethnicon of the Illyrian/Venetic tribe of the Histri who inhabited the region.[1]

The name could itself be related to Hister, a Roman name for the Danube, from Ancient Greek Ἰστρίη (Istríē), the Dacian-Thracian name for the river god Danubius, a name meaning "swift," and ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *dʰenh₂- (to flow).[2] Also see Histria.

Proper noun[edit]

Istria

  1. A peninsula in Croatia, Slovenia, and Italy, on the northeastern coast of the Adriatic Sea: The Istrian Peninsula.
  2. A county in western Croatia.
