  • NOTE

    * Cosânzeni is the no longer existing name of a locality (a village and the hospital near by) close to the city of Chisinãu (Basarabia). The toponym was created by the author’s grandfather, doctor Mihai Isanos, soon after WWI when Basarabia joined Romania, in order to replace the Russified name of the village. Unfortunately, before the toponym was registered as such, the village joined a larger commune and the hospital preserved its old name, Costiujeni, which has its own very sad story. The name Cosânzeni still appeared in a few baptism and marriage certificates issued by the hospital parish. Etymologically, the name Cosânzeni is related to the main feminine character is the beautiful Cosânzeana (an equivalent of the Fairy Queen), but also to the idea of brotherhood, associated to a no longer existing word, cosângean, meaning of the same blood. An approximate etymological translation would be Fairy Talers.
