    Might it have been Brudna, the eastern dialect word meaning dirty (in the feminine singular form, since mac~ka (cat) is fem. sing.)? H All guesses my own

      Sue,

      If he had a strong accent he may have been saying "brother", "Broodr".

      Z Bohom,

      My dad (whose parents immigrated from what is now Slovakia) thought we children
      should name a cat we had what sounded like "Bruda", which he pronounce broo-da.
      Does anyone know what this word may be, and what it means? My dad had few words
      that he carried from his parents. He called my sister "kapusta", which I now
      know means cabbage.
