Names and etymology

The first written mention of Vrakuňa was in 1279 as a village named Werekne. Some other recorded medieval names are Verekene (1290), Frecendorf (1297), Verekuna (1323), Oluerekenye (1356), Berekenye in theutonico Fratedorf (1393) or Vraknye (1459).

The name is probably derived from a Proto-Slavic appelative *vrakunъ, potentially reflecting Pre-Christian (pagan) rituals. The stem vra- means "to speak without making any sense", vrakúň – a wizzard, preserved in Russian as вракун/vrakun – a liar, a gossip).[1][2] Lajos Kiss (1988) tried to drive the name from Proto-Slavic vir- (a whirl). Šimon Ondruš (1990) from Proto-Slavic vorkъ (in East Slavic languages: vorok - a fence, a barrier) like Vorkonъ, Vorkunovka and other similar names,[3] but documented only for the East Slavs.


Vrakuňa became an official borough of Bratislava on January 1, 1972.
