History / Monographs / Terekhtemyriv / Name



Nicholas Zharkikh

The name is known from the 16th century. The specific form of Ukrainian names should be considered pleophonic Terekhtemyriv. There is no convincing explanation of the name in literature. In my opinion, the explanation must come from distinct antroponimic form of name (house or a farm of Terekhtemyr). Name Terekhtemyr quite obviously consists of two Tatar words Terek + Temir. It is impossible to connect this Terek-Temir with someone famous historical figures. It can be assumed that the proper name reflects the process of settling of Kaniv region in the Golden Horde time of 2 half 13 1 half 14th century.
