    berstuk sounds much like “borsuk” – a badger in eastern Slovak dialect

    The Slavorum e-book was my introduction to the Slavic Gods. A few pages from the book. I love it to this day.

    BTW, since Svarog is a god of fire and blacksmithing, Is the word Svarog a cognate with Slovak words zvar (weld), zvárať (to weld)… or am I tripping again? Also variť means to cook, but also boil. Zvariť literally means “to boil together”.

    @”Kapitán Denis”

    Researchers suggested that etymology of Svarog has Indo-Aryan origins from Svarga – sky, skyey in English.
    Vasmer suggested in his dictionary of etymology which is dated a little that Svarog has the same etymology with svar – svarytysya in Ukrainian, svarycca – Belarusian, svara – Russian . To scold in English.
