About the Turku surname

Turku in Finnland might be named after Kadashman-Turgu king of Kashshu and of Kar-Duniash somewhen in the XIVth century b.c or some centuries later or earlier .

His most likely ancestor was Ganda ,the first king of te empire that originally might have been located in Siberia ,identical with the Byblical Ganda ,whose issue has chosen to live beyond Wared-Na ,that is the North Pole ,in the regions called Galar-Ganda .

Attested Kashshu léaguage seems to be closest to today's Suomi dialects of Finno-Ugrian ones , so the main branch of the dynasty might have been consisted of the sons of Sha-ya-Nawa , of whom Skandinavia as Sha-Ganda-ya-Nawa has been named ,and who is the ancestor of the people now internationally known as Finn .

Possibly though ,ancestors of later Turk peoples were also present in the country and Turku could base his power predominantly onto them ,or was somehow involved in family ties with them .

Jews and christians read Gad,Yarden Gilead,Shuni.
