About the Bourgogne surname

Bourgogne in France,as it is known,was named after Burgund people who are generally believed to be of Wandal origin ,or to be related to the latter . Burgund name itself therefore may be derived from Burg-Wanda ,and may well refer to the extant castle of Wanda that is in Kraków ,Galicia ,the settlement of early Wandals .

Burgund though might also be explained from Burg-Hund ,meaning Dog-Castle ,that may be a translation of Kynopolis ,the name of a city in Aigypt likely founded by Anubis son of Dionysos . In the local language its name sounded Sereb what corresponds to the name of Serbs both in the Balkan and in Saxony . Serbs in the southe are believed to have moved there from the North ,from a region called Boiki , that is what Boiko people in Galicia lives or had lived ,near Francony ,that in turn could rather refer to Sorbia in East Germany . So it is likely that Serbs ,former inhabitants of Kynopolis ,were living in between the two regions, around Cracaw ,and that was the place some of them moved towards Makedonia from . Meanwhile others remaining in Galicia might have intermixed with Wandals and invented Burgund name .

Anubis might be also the namesake of D'Anubi river,whereas his father Dionys could have been called by Sarmata peoples along it on their ancient native language brought from Matsar Awa-Sela , from what Slav has been formed .

Burhwund-Deitch and Bungan-Daetch peoples once in Australia may also be of Burgund origin .

As it is known ,the king of Wandals,Genzerik-Thiudimer ,son of Gothari-Vandalari ,moved to Africa around or after 127 AD that corresponds to 439 and 403 of Seleucid and Arsakid aeras respectively , as well as to 1192 of te Norman one with beginning in 1065 BC and to 1514 of the Sapnish one now i n use in Europe and in regions heavily influenced by Europeans ,just as are the UNO members , for example . His name has been in African tradition preserved as Ruganzu Bwimba to whom and to the Tutsi followers of whom the foundation of Rwanda and Burundi kingdoms is credited . It is therefore quite likely that there were also Burgunds in his army ,from the kingdom his father had ruled . Genzerik-Thiudimer was also the king of Mongols ,who tend to call him Chinggis-Demurtchin , that is king of the Geese .Goose sounds Barbar in the Byblical language,so he was regarded as the king of Berbers ,or of the very white, if interpreted in Khaldaian ,a dialect of which is still spoken near Borno ,where Wandala tribe still lives . He may also be the one Hungarian tradition calls Andreas ,that is Anda-Rewa or even Wanda-Rewa , described as leader of a cruzader party into the depth of Aigypt .So it is quite likely Ruanda was named after him,or was he named after the country ,as Rewa-Anda .

One of Genzerik's sons was Genton ,who might have got this name because of some connection to Gentoo people in Andhra region of India ,who are nowadays the Telugu ,so he may be identical with Tolugi of the sons of Chinggis . Yandruwanda tribe also in Australia could also be suspected with Wandal origins ,as qwell as with having come from Ruanda ,involved in their name as Ya-Anda-Ruwandha . Some of them could even have been called Gentoo-Wanda ,that is Wandals of Gentón .

This dynasty of Holy Kings was referred to at by Mongols as Deichiut ,in plural ,so it is likely that Burhwund-Deitch people got under the leadership of their dynasty to Australia .The dynasty itself may also be related to Diuche people among the rest of Mapuches ,who ought to be regerded as the closest Inca successors ,when even not of the local ones only ,but also of later immigrants from Brasil and Guayana . One of the Inca ancestors in tradition has the name Kon Diti Barakocha ,so members of Barkondeet tribe among the Bungan-Daetch might have formed their group on the base of their common descendance from him . Their relatives the Wandals of Ruanda ,that is the Yandruwandha were in turn centered around a place called Innamincka ,that might alos be named after the Incas of America ,more specially after one of the members of the dynasty .

The main line of it was descended ,as it is known ,form Didu Kusi Wallpa ,who is identifyable with Gui-Deri of British tradition ,and of Theydas ,that if Tshe-Wu-i-Ut-Da of Iudaian one ,ruling until about 44 AD ,that corrsponds to 1433 of the current Spanish aera beginning in 1387 BC ,used all around the globe . It is plausible from this ,that Deutsch ,derived from the latter and Deery ,done so from the previous ,has been surnames of equal value .Didu namely corresponds to David and Wallpa to Apollón,

how Greeks once in Polynesia called the Nawatl ancestor referred to at Ashkanazui tradition as Hirsch, that is Deer .

Deery alias Diyerrie tribe thus could also have been a branch of the family ,closely related to Yandruwandha . The deity or ancestral hero of these tribes was known as Moorra-Moorra ,whose name might be brought from the same Eastern European tradition where the ethnonym Mordva ,as Moorra-Dva meaning Two Moorras ,

was taken from . The people of Mordva may basically be descended from A'ad-Sab-Er-Gaya-Na son of Ganda ,called also  Sabádios or Dionysos in Thrakia .

Ganda of Kar-Dunia could also be the first king of Karkhédón .
