Onda Name Evolution (5454 words)
The Ondava is one of the major arteries of the upper Tisa (Tisza) river area, and stretches from lower Zemplin at Trebišov north to Stropkov and then northwest into Šariš, where it becomes the Ondavka toward its headwaters.
Hungarian historians once assumed that the name of the Ondava, like that of the Tokaji wine village of Ond, was a geographical legacy from the ancient figure Ónd since this was his bailiwick and the name does signify ‘Ónd River’; /52.
What is more, in a document from the second half of the 15th century the Ondava at Stropkov was still being referred to as the Bodrog, and as late as an urbarium of 1601 it was still recorded as the Bodrog at Trebišov /55.
