From PIE: *morĝ-
From Proto-Celtic: *mrogi-
Attestation: broχθui


Lexical Gaul. brogi- 'border, territory' (Lambert 1994: 190) is well attested as an onomastic element in Gaulish. In Pannonia, cf. brogimarus/brogimara (Meid 2005: 99 f.). Cf. GPN: 158–160, DLG: 91, Delamarre 2007: 214 et passim, Matasović 2009 s.v. *mrogi-.

Attested only once (uncertainly) in the Cisalpine area so far, in a compound name which probably belongs to an Ambi-Danubian Celtic (Tauriscan?) rather than Cisalpine Gaulish filum.
