Antonio Sciarretta's Toponymy
Its original inhabitants were the Pannonii, of unknown stock, although likely related to other Central European and Balcanic peoples. Under the emperor Trajan, the province was divided into Pannonia Superior (the western part) and Pannonia Inferior (the eastern part).
Common remarks: the place-names have been put in the nominative case, an asterisk * means not attested, reconstructed form. The late place-names of probable Latin origin have not been included. The IE roots are in the form given by Pokorny's Indogermanische Wörterbuch. The links will be active when the single pages will be published, see the main page. For any comment, suggestion, email me.
The second stratum is Celtic, brought in Pannonia by tribes like the Boii, the Scordisci, the Taurisci, etc. This stratum is recognizable for typical appellatives and suffixes. Traces of other linguistic strata also appear in Pannonia, possibly including a Germanic one at the northern Danube border, and a satem one (early Slavic? Moesian?) toward Illyria and Moesia.
