with the auction going on, and increased silver demand, here is a way to gain some extra silver for the auction:

35silver CUPON reward for whoever finds a historic record of the name Marducci before 1900
40silver CUPON for whoever finds what the name Duralia means and its origin.
25silver CUPON for whoever finds the meaning and origin of the name Maha

bonus 20 if you find an important historic figure with the name duralia or maha before 1900
note: marducci is spelled right, its not martucci. maha might be macha but its 90% maha.

the purpose of this research is personal.

CUPON MEANS YOU WILL GET THAT AMOUNT OF SILVER CREDITED FOR YOUR AUCTION BID. cupon is tradeable . I will exchange remaining cupons to silver, if you wish so, after auction is over.

Maha is used chiefly in the [url="http://www.babynamespedia.com/search/f/arabic"]Arabic[/url] and [url="http://www.babynamespedia.com/search/f/indian"]Indian[/url] languages. It is derived from Arabic origins. The name means [i][url="http://www.babynamespedia.com/search/f/beautiful"]beautiful[/url] [url="http://www.babynamespedia.com/search/f/eyes"]eyes[/url][/i]. [or splendid]
Maha is a form of the name [url="http://www.babynamespedia.com/meaning/Maja"][b]Maja[/b][/url] (Polish, Scandinavian, Slavic, and German).

This very unusual Irish name is believed to originate from Galloway in Scotland where it was originally spelt as Mac Giolla Chairge - 'the son of the servant of Carraigh' - a personal name [b]meaning 'the rock'.[/b] (...). The name also appears in The Famine Record for 1845-46 as Mahagin (son of the son of 'Harg') and Michael Maha, as well Joan Maharg of Liverpool, described as a lady who eimgrated to America in 1846. (...).

The name Maaha is there in three languages i.e. Arabic, persian, and Hindi ... In Arabic, it means "beautiful eyes" where actually it refers to the eyes of a deer ... in Persian, it means "moon like" or "resembling moon" and in Hindi, it is used as an adjective not as a name and it means "great". This name is used for girls and used in Muslim countries.

It mean's moon-like in urdu.
There is a misconception of the word " maha" in Arabic , thinking it means large eyes, well in Arabic "maha " means the type of deer that lives in the desert [b]that has large eyes.

Edit when I realized Aelis beat me to it: Filameno is mentioned in the list found by Aelis, but this link gives two small children traveling with her.

Not much is given with the term Duralia.

But, the name itself might have originated from the Name Durali( A male version of that name)
(no source for this, just a guess)

But if it were to originate to Durali.

Then it would have a cultural background of German, according to thi site:

This is all assuming that the name originates for Durali.

A Book: The Duralia Name in History

Not sure wants in it. But seems to have some background to US, or north america.


A list of surname matching to duralia in the US.

Most of the duralia surname found are either from the US, or moved to the US.

Will edit fi foudn more info.

same as above, Romanian/gypsy version of Greek "Kamburi". the latter one is funnily enough used in a nigerian/419 email scam - http://www.419scam.org/emails/2008-08/18/00437184.310.htm

also, as dst mentioned, Rio Camburu is a river in Brazil. It is also apparently the name of a village of some sort in Romania (http://www.traveljournals.net/explore/romania/map/m1702397/camburul.html). There's also a type of crayfish called Cambaridae Camburus (http://www.fishlore.com/Profiles-Crayfish.htm)

In terms of its adaptation from Kamburi, here is some information:


A place name - possibly an abbreviation of Kamburee. Seems to have something to do with the Japanese army.



According to Google there is some link between this name and the cult of the dead in eddystone of the solomons - although once you follow the link the name is not retrievable in the single free page


(funny thing with this if you read the bit about spirits)

A type of written prose as demonstrated in 1887 by one Tokai Sanshi in his book Kajin no Kigu

Buri is the Japanese name for large yellowtail fish. Buri caught in winter are called [b]kamburi[/b], and are fattier and tastier.

This is probably the reason for the link to the Japanese army that Z found.

In the Caribbean area, [b]Camburu[/b] is the common name of some moray eels, [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_moray"][i]Gymnothorax funebris[/i][/url] and [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spotted_moray"][i]Gymnothorax moringa[/i][/url]. There is also a fish, [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlantic_tarpon"][i]Megalops atlanticus[/i][/url], which is called locally camburupu.

This may be related to the river Camburu in Brazil.

I don't think this have to be with Romania or Greece but this is what I found about [b][u]Camburi[/u][/b]:

Free translation:

Camburi or Cambury cames from Kamury a type of fish. The 'mu' can be transformed in 'mbu',(...). The fish is known in Manaus/AM, Brazil, as Kamurin. Could be as well kamury 'y wich means river of the camurins.


[url="http://camburicamburizinho.com.br/etimologia-de-camburi/"][size="3"][font="Times New Roman"]Se realmente for de origem tupi, e provavelmente é, Camburi (na certa também há a variação de cambury) provavelmente deriva de kamury que é uma espécie de peixe. O mu pode se transformar em mbu, por exemplo, muru (certo tipo de planta canácea/possui também outros significados) pode ser dito também na forma mburu. Da mesma forma como o mo pode ser escrito como mbo (pó também pode ser mbó /ambos significam mão) então camuri pode se transformar em camburi. A espécie é conhecida como robalo, mas na minha região (Manaus-Amazônia) é camurim mesmo! Poderia ser kamuri+’y (peixe camurim + rio = rio dos camurins ou rio dos robalos), pois água é ‘y (que é uma vogal média, é uma vogal entre o ‘i’ e o ‘u’/lábios em forma de ‘i’ mas pronunciando ‘u’).Eu acredito que seja por ai.[/font][/size][/url]

oh gee, Mur, i thought we were to send you answers by pm. sorry...:P sent you one yesterday at 1pm about the Maha.

in case you havent check your mail, here's what i sent you:

Here’s what I could come up so far:

The word “Maha” in Urdu, means “moon-like” or “resembling a moon.”

In Arabic, it refers to a kind of deer with “large eyes” (which may also mean “beautiful eyes”)

In Hindi, it is used as an adjective, which means “great.” Like Mahatma – “great soul,” Maharishi – “great sages,” or Maharaja – “great king”

It seems to me that the compounded meaning directs to something that is round like the moon or the eyes, and large or of great size or magnanimity.

Mystically, it could come to mean something that is of great importance like the circle or cycle of life – the orouborus. A sphere of arcane knowledge perhaps? Hehe..I’m pushing it too far, am i?

Also in a more recent history, it directs to a Native American Omaha Tribe that lived along the “River of the Mahas” in 17[sup]th[/sup] century Iowa. A French cartographer mapped the tribe as “The Maha, a wandering nation” in 1718.

it seems to me that the word "Camburu" refers to the word Camburus/Cambarus which is a genus of crustaceans.

for example:

[b]Scientific Name :[/b] Cambaridae [color="#8b0000"]Camburus[/color] [b]Common Names :[/b] Crawdad, Crayfish, Crawfish

[b]Origin / Habitat :[/b] Different species all over the world

[b]Temperament / Behavior :[/b] May fight with other invertebrates and go after smaller fish.



also sourced in the pdf file attached. go to page11 and look up the first crustacean mentioned under the Taxa column
