George and Juri

George - Juri Earth - Sun Evidently, the root of the form George originates from the area of the kentum group of languages (k, h), which, in the Neolithic, were diffused in North Africa and Europe. It is about the pre-Semitic (Hamitic) H-G-r, in the Arabian Hadarun "cultivated country" (region in qua sunt abitacula fixa) etc. (Möller 1911, 2). Later, this root appears without h as *agr, in Indo-European agros > in Greek agros "cultivated country" (rural possessions in contrast to the city), in Latin ager… Thus, the first meaning of the word is referred to the earth (gèa, in Greek). In this language, the word georgios means a farmer. In opposition to this, the name form Juri (Yuri) very probably originates in the pre-Semitic A-u-r, the root of which is *aur (also *aul, later with the s-prefix: saul) meaning the sun. From this root we have the Assyrian urri "light, day", the new-Hebrew ora "light, sun"… and so on (Möller 1911, 22). This root originates in the group of satem languages (s, z), which in the Neolithic period, ca. 6000 BC, were spread in Mesopotamia and in the Middle East (Cavalli-Sforza 1996, 154). I think, the bearers of agriculture also introduced the "Juri" figure, which referred to the sun (and not to the earth). The development of the word, considering the iotacism, could only have been as follows: aur > jaur, jar, jur > Juri (Yuri). Like in the case of Javorniki (hills exposed to the sun). http://www.carantha.net/slovenian_mythology__slovensko_bajeslovje_.htm
