    There isn't any Slavic tribe with "-ing" in the name. Miling looks derived form Germanic source, but I know they spoke Slavic language, so it is mysterious

    I just read that Strymonites comes from the river Strymonas and Rynchinoi according to Stoianovich from an unknown river between Strymonas and Axios rivers.

    I read the following about Milingoi: Ήταν γνωστοί και ως Μελιγγοί ή Μελίγγοι, Μιλτζάνοι, Μιλένζοι, Μιλτσάνοι και Μηλίγγοι.
    They were also known as Melingì or Melìngi, Miltzani, Milenzi, Miltsani or Milingi.

    Ethnonyms Russian, Belarusian, Rusyn have peculiar etymology.

    Most plausible explanation provided by linguists is that ‘Rus’ is a Slavic adaptation of Finnish term 'Ruotsi' that ancestors of Finns, Estonians and neighbouring Finnic speaking tribes applied to Norsemen. Maybe to Vikings originally? Because 'Ruotsi' means 'rowers' in Finnish as far as I know. Finns use the term 'Ruotsi' for Swedes to these days.

    Explanation on transformation of Ruotsi > Rus provided by linguists if you are interested.

     

    Ethnonyms for Finnic tribes ending with the letter 'i' transformed to exoethnonyms used in Slavic language ending with soft consonants. For example, Suomi – Sum', Vepsi – Ves', Tšuudi – Chud'. Also , Yem', Vod' , Lop', Kors’ (Curonians), Liv’ (Livonians).So, Ruotsi – Rus' with soft consonant at the end. The phoneme 'uo' transformed to 'u' (as the sound in book). That is, Suomi – Sum', Ruotsi – Rus'. Also, some linguists are suggesting that the letter 't' was dropped from 'Ruotsi' the same way as the letter 'p' was dropped from 'Vepsi'. The transformation of 'Ruotsi' > Rus' sounds plausible. All aforementioned Finnic and Baltic (Curonians) tribes survived till later times.

    To these days common given names among eastern Slavs Olga (Helga), Oleg (Helg), Igor (Ingvar) are Norse in origin. These are the names of our early rulers.

    Very interesting, Volat, thank you. My father was asking me the other time about the Rus in general, I will give him this new info too.
