About the Barkan surname

Barkan family may somehow be descended from and named after Dya-Barkan ,king of the Jarma people ,
who may also be identical with Barankami ( Bar-Ang-Kan-Mi ) ,king of Gobir ,and with Barka Mbody'
( Bar-Kambodya ) ,alias Bar-Kan-Mbo-Dya ,king of Waalo kingdom of Wolof people until about 123 BC ,
that is 1226 of the formerly used old Euroepan aera of begin in 1349 BC ,and 1264 according to the
current one of begin in 1387 BC .

Being the king of Waalo ,he was known as Walo-Id in Somalia ,and as Id-Wal in Wales ,in events described
by the Northern aera of begin in 1065 BC ,according to which he ruled until about 942 .
He might have been the king of Kambodyan peoples and their neighbours and relatives ,as his name shows ,
that may be for example the Tsaam ,related to the Cham of Vietnam and others .
He was succeeded by Tyaaka Mbar in Waalo ,who as Chaak-Ambar ,might be identical with Ziraziracambaro ,
or rather Sila-Sila-Acambaro ,king of Michoacan in the Holy Land of America ,after whom the town of Acámbaro ,
there ,and that of Ambar-Gasta in the Chaco region may be named .

Chaka or Diaguit chiefs in Chile and Argentina may be descended from him as well,and Kamiare tribe may be
the successors of the Kambodyan Khmer followers of his predecessor ,Barang-Kanmi .
He may also be the ancestor of Chak noble clan in Hungaria ,claiming descent from a Zobolch .
This ancient Zobolch may in fact be Zo-Baltsh ,and may be identical with Chaac,in case he is the same
as Ayar Toba -Gochi ,the ancestor of the kings of Toba kingdom ,called also Tab-Gach ( Tob'-Goch' ) of Asia ,
who was called by Goths Balth .
His name in Japan was Go-Toba and in Mongolian noble tradition Bogo-Gatagi .
The later Zobolch ,alias Zo-Bogotai ,called Chakur by the Balochi ,may be named after the first one .
It appears thought that Tyaaka Mbar ,and his three brothers ,were only adopted by his predecessor ,Barka Mbody .

Cambodians are belived to originate from Pamir region ,maybe precisely from where Bartangi river flows .
Its name may also refer to Bar-Ang-Kan-Mi ,as Bar-ta-Angi ,who thus was Bartangi Kambodya .
Ang is a Cambodian title for princes .
He may well be identical with Artaban ,king of Parthia,that involved the Bartangi region too ,whos name
might have been an Iranised version of Ang-ta-Bar ,turned into Ar-ta-Ban .
He was also known to the Mande ,as Wana Kamara ,king of Tabon ,and to the Mongolians ,as Taban-Mara-Kan .

His father was according to the Wolof memory Abdu Dardai ,who might have rather been Aba-Daud-Ar-Dewi ,
and be identical with Ari Dev ,founder of Malla dynasty of Nepal ,and with Roka Didu ,the ancestor of Cuzco Incas .
These names ,as well as the Chimú Acunta ( Ag-Kunda ) ,and the Welsh Anarawd ( Andar-Daud ) ,may refer to
him as the "David " of his epoch ,as the ancient "David" ,or rather Ed-Da-ya-Wa-Da was called Cunedagi
( Kuneda-Agi ) in a Brittanian tradition and Alrik in a Scandinavian one .
In the antiquity his name they used was Sagd-Odonak or Odonark or Odoméra or Odomar ,the same as in the
Franconian chronicle ,as well as Prusias and Masinissa ,that may be the Samskrit rendering of what Rka Didi
and Ragas Didis in Georgian and Prussian means : Big Horn .
Odomar was said to be the predecessor,likely father of Angis ,identical with Angis / Augis of the Goths ,
predecessor of Amal ,likely brother of Baltha ,who thus may be identical with Dya-Bar-Kan alias Bar-Ang-Kan-Mi
or Bar-Kan-Mbo-Dya ,the Cambodian king ,Artaban .

It is unclear from the sources,if he had own sons and if did , what exactly their name and status was ,
but if he had ,some of them may be the forefathers of Barkan families from the Holy Land ,who would
thus be related to some European rulers of Germanian peoples,that are the Francs and Goths .
