Re: To Marc: Thanks, that's my conclusion too, that it's Romanian. I'll keep looking for the etymology and meaning :)
Re: To Jim:
I'm a writer and historian, specialized in Central European history so I know quite a lot about that part of the world, about the Transylvanian issue and the like. :) I was completely aware of the Hungarian Visegrad, but I'm absolutely sure the name is from Bosnia, as my great-grandfather was brought up in a town only 10 km away from the Bosnian Visegrad, and the name was originally spelled with a diacritic above the S, which Hungarian does not use -
(as S is read as a SH in Hungarian without any need for diacritics, while in the Latinization of Bosnian, the S without anything on top is read just like an English normal S).
To everyone reading this: Thanks A LOT for your time and if you know anything about this, please let me know!! Thanks again.
