The question really is: What is the origin of toponym Босна-Bosnia. If there is underlying meaning of the word, that would explain it. I never really gave it a thought. I'll look into it. If you find some answer please let us know. :)

Country got name from river. Some tried to prove name is derived from Illyrian word for salt, but it holds not much logic (river named after slat). And that "Illyrian word" is shiptar. Well since connection between Illyrians and shiptars is highly doubtfull, I dont think that could be correct. Well it was customary for people to call their willages after regions they arrived from. You have Serbian-Macedonian nobles Šebići Horvati. (named after village in Macedonia)
