A little plus for the the meaning of the name "Seret" river.
I think there's no meaning or in Ukrainian nor Russian. In Hungarian, the word "szeret" means "he who loves", or "it, that loves". Hungarians marched across - and maybe settled for a while - this region in the IX. century AD. Tombs of warriors near Krilos has been proven to be built for hungarian warrioirs. Hungarian experts say, these tombs are too much towards the north, but I think if you look at the map its clearly in the way, if someone comes from the north-esat, and goes towards the west, avoiding the mountanious areas of northern-Carpathians.
The villages name nearby, for example Ivano-Frankivsk are given names, this one's original name was "zabolottya", which means in hungarian "(the place where) he gives it (a horse) oat"
I dont understand, if this origins, and meanings are cleary and widely known, why they are not displayed in the article. I dont see nationalism in this, now the whole thing is undoubtedly Ukrainian territory, and it will be for a long time, but we shouldnt forget the past so esily. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 09:51, 10 May 2009 (UTC)
