yes of course...thats perheps the reson of why Yugoslavia was formed

The origin of Tesla's last name is known and there is no debate upon it. Tesla explains it himself in his autobiography. His (paternal, from mother's it's Mandic) family's last name was Draganic, they're migrants that fled from the Ottoman Turks from the Old Vlach region in modern-day Montenegro, just below the river of Tara. Nikola's recent ancestor asserted his family name Tesla from the tool very akin to the Axe, a thing not unusual for many Serb refugees in those times. Tesla in Serbo-Croat means Adze, a rough tool for woodcutting as Nikola Tesla comes from a woodcutter's family (by not far descent). As such, "Tesla" became a sort-of regional surname, which was typical for clanmen back then - in Lika itself, in the Habsburg Military Frontier to which the Draganics moved.

So, after you it was a linguistic problem.


I don't know the Serbian language, Tesla too sound non-Serbian for me.

How is declined this word in Serbian?


Tesla

Tesle

Tesli

Tesle

Tesla

Teslom

Tesli

It comes from the word "Adze", which in Serbo-Croat means "Adze".

You have made a terrible mistake. Angry

It's actually Bosnian-Bunyev-Croatian-Montenegrin-Serbian-Yugoslavian-Zlatibor

Thanks. In Romanian tesla means the same thing.

But searching in a dictionary I have found this:


English language        Serbian language
adze                           bradva


So, it seems is not the main word used for that tool, as is in Romanian.

Bunyev is the language of the Bynyevatz tiny Catholic people that populates Vojvodina, originally from Bosnia.

Zlatibor is the term used for the language spoken around the mountain of Zlatibor in western and southwestern Serbia (in Sandzak). Because no one really is a determined speaker though, it's more often referred as "Uzice Speech" (Uzice the largest city).

This is all too confusing for me... from now on my native language is Shatrovacki.

Oh, there is one more - I forgot: "Ours language" (natively: Nasinski jezik). It's spoken by The Hillmen (nativel: Goranci) people in Serbia (from The Hills, "Gora", at the south of Kosovo), a Moslem people of Serbian origins, although the greater part of them call it Serbian language.

There, I think I've covered all (except that no one calls it "Yugoslavian" anymore, so slash that). :)

Unlike most standard Serbian in Serbia, the Zlatiborian uses Iyekavian speech.

Well yeah, so do I, but that's just minority and colloquially - you do recognize Bosnian, don't you? These people mostly call their language that way (Croatian, Serbian, Zlatibor, Montenegrin, Bunyev, Zlatibor, Ours). Same manner we could say a lot call it "Serbo-Croatian", and often me too, but it's in the same position.

In Transylvania and Banat, everyone has first, last and nick name.  If I were Nicolae Draghici Teslaru coming from Croatia to the US, I would have to choose an Americanized name like Nicola Tesla and still be 100% Romanian.  Draghici would be tough to pronounce in New York.  “Tesla” sounds vocal and it is close enough to Teslaru – the Romanian meaning for “carpenter”.  Nickname “Teslaru” means “carpenter” which was the profession of Nicolae’s grandfather.  Although hard to accept by some, The Romanian Language was spread to a much larger territory that the country "Romania" we know today.  Language survived in high-altitude places all the way to Italy and back to its historic sites of Macedonia.  Despite occupational oppressions, The Romanian Language along with its carriers has not changed in 4,000 years.  Nicola Tesla was just one of us: a Romanian who survived and opened doors to the future of Earthlings.   Croatia, Serbia, Yugoslavia, US, Romania, Hungary, all can we adopt Nicola as our genius brother.
