brerore

AlbanianEdit

EtymologyEdit

A derivation of bri (horn), contaminated with brinjë (rib, literally horn-shaped or semicircular halo over one's head). Alternatively, it might be an irregular derivation of Latin aurora, with a strong change in pronunciation similar to Ancient Greek αὔρα (aúra). The evolution could have been aurora > *avreora > *vrerore > brerore.
