I sort of wanted to keep the Bulgarian mythology treatment of ispolin separate because I doubt it would be very close to the Russian legends of giants tied to that word, if there are any. I mean, at 3k+ bytes, it's well-deserving of a separate piece.
P.S. Can you find a source for the spali etymology? That would be an interesting addition in any case. Best, Todor→Bozhinov 17:44, 21 June 2010 (UTC)
