Baltym - Lake of Russia (Sverdlovsk Region)
On the origin of the name of the lake, Baltim, there are manyopinions. Some believe that its hydronome is a native of Turkic language "bol" - be it "tym" - quietly, which means "be quiet". However, scientists consider this view erroneous. If you pay attention to the correctness of writing in a given language, then only the root base participates in this hypothesis. And the verb "to be" in Tatar sounds like a bull, and in Bashkir it sounds like a bully.
There is another version of the origin of the name"Baltym". It already has Russian roots. This statement says that the Slavic people, in order to simplify the discordant forms, improved the pronunciation of "Baltsky" or "Baltysky" more in tune: "Baltysky."
