Meaning & History

From the nickname Турба (Turba) which was probably derived from an old dialectal word meaning "face, snout, muzzle (of an animal)", used as a name for a person with an unpleasant or ugly appearance. Alternately, it may have come from the dialectal word турбовать (turbovat) meaning "disturb, bother" (a name for a fussy and restless person) or from тур (tur) meaning "ox, aurochs".
