Rain in Serbian is pljusak or kiša. I always thought it had something to do with the word for soak – pokisi, pokisao
It sounds like Kisa is an older term than Dazd for rain because that is what happens when it rains- things get sopping and dripping wet. Dazd sounds like it came from the name of a goddess like the rain goddess Dodola. A strange-like creature living in the water is called Dazd in Serbian.
