Main Article Content

Titos P. Jochalas


A brief exposition of the time and nature of the settlement of Albanians in Greece is followed by reference to previous works by Greeks containing discussion of Albanian surnames and place-names in Greece. The writer then studies more systematically the formation and the most common endings of Albanian surnames in Greece, stressing that the majority of them are formed from nouns and nicknames. The most common endings are in -ας and in -ης, followed by those in -ας, -ής and -ος. Finally, certain suffixes of Albanian place-names in Greece are
examined at length, such as the Greek -ίστρα and -αριά and the Albanian -εζα, -ιζα and -θι.
