Burgos in Spain and a lot of other cities with the word "burg" in them, like Hamburg, have the same literal composition. It is widely thought that the name of the city comes from the Latin word "burgus," which means "tower." This word comes from a Roman travel post that used to be in the area of today's Burgas Port. Manuel Phil, a Byzantine poet, wrote about the town 15 centuries later and called it "Pyrgos," which means "tower." This word is the same as the Greek word for tower. The name came to Bulgarian from Turkey, where it was called Burgaz. There are a lot of different ways to think about how the name came to be. One of them says that the city's name comes from the word "baurgs," which means "consolidated walled villages." A Bulgarian professor says that the name of the city comes from the word "pyurg," which means "wooden beams fortified." Also, it is thought that the name comes from the name of the khan Burtaz (683-633 BC).
