Stavo

Posted 14 November 2012 - 08:21 AM
 
In Frisian mythology, 'Stavoren' is mentioned as the oldest and most important city of 'Friesland'.
It would have been named after the god or idol Stavo. (OLB fragments below.)

In Belgium there is a city Stavelot (German name: Stablo; Walon: Ståvleu).

In the North-French Pas-de-Calais area there is a city Étaples (In Dutch a.k.a. Stapel).
Portus Staliocanus from Ptolomeus' Geographica II-8? (Suggested by J. Vandemaele.)

In Greek Stavros (Σταύρος) means pole or cross. It is a common name for people and places.
(I can imagine the link between a tree or carved pole/ trunk and and the name for an idol.)

Stable and staple are related words.

Once one accepts that Friesland/ Frisia from the myths does not equal the current Dutch province Friesland,
that remains of old-Stavoren will not be found in nowaday Stavoren (same for Medemblik etc.),
and that the Gyganten (giants), the dragon and mermaid may have been metaphors (or added to entertain the audience),
the mythology offers many possible new views and starts to make much more sense.

It is understandable why they were rejected as merely fiction between the 18th and 20th century.
A revision will answer many questions.

And, I guess , names like Steven, Stefan, Stephanie, Esteban.

The Dutch and German naval term steven (stem of ship).
Danish: stævn
Norwegian: Stevn
Swedish: Stäv
French: étrave 
More related Dutch words:
staaf (rod, bar)
stevig (firm, solid)  
And, of course, staf...
... and staffel.
