      Very interesting table! Would you know what date approximately was each of these term first encountered? For example can we assign Surya to 1500 B.C i.e Rig Vedic time?

        Are people whispering about the quality of your reconstructions?
        Do your stems split at the ends?
        Do not despair! Dr. Pedersen's super-glue, the phoneme /ŋ/ will remedy the situation! No more embarassing same-semantics double forms!

        (also used as anthoponym), older designation of the Dacians

        Strab. 7, 3, 12:

        [But there is also another division of the country which has endured from early times, for some of the people are called Daci, whereas others are called Getae - Getae, those who incline towards the Pontus and the east, and Daci, those who incline in the opposite direction towards Germany and the sources of the Ister.

        Acc. to Hdt. 1, 125 a nomad people in mid-Iran call themselves Dάοι.
        Dάος, Dα~ος as anthroponym occurs frequently in the parts of Asia Minor not belongiung to Bithynia, esp. in Phrygia, where it appears also as theonym (cf.
        Kretschmer Einl. 202;
        Ramsay JHS 38, 1918, 168;
        Sundwall LN 65).
        There is further the Phrygian appellative
        δάος• ´υπ`ο Φρυγω~ν λύκος Hesych.,
        which by Kretschmer Einl. 211 is joined with OBg. daviti "strangle" from the root dhaw-. Davus as anthroponym occurs also in the Celtic language area (cf. Holder AC 1, 1245).
        Worth considering is the attempt of WT. Thr. II 2, 29, to derive Dāvos from the root dhe:- "collo­care, ponere" and consequently interpret it as "settler, farmer".

        [These beasts, accordingly, were brought in, and moreover Dacians and Suebi fought in crowds with one another. The latter are Germans, the former Scythians of a sort. The Suebi, to be exact, dwell beyond the Rhine (though many people elsewhere claim their name), and the Dacians on both sides of the Ister; those of the latter, however, who live on this side of the river near the country of the Triballi are reckoned in with the district of Moesia and are called Moesians, except by those living in the immediate neighbourhood, while those on the other side are called Dacians and are either a branch of the Getae are Thracians belonging to the Dacian race that once inhabited Rhodope. ]
        (Here Dio, as noted in WT. Thr. I 71 and 101, had in mind the Dι~οι and the Dιακόν γένος in Thuc. 7, 27, 1, changing without further ado the latter to Dακικόν γένος, although he wanted to make the Dι~οι the ancestors of the Dacians);

        Kretschmer Einl. 214 is of the opinion that Dāci is related to Dα~οι in the same manner as Graeci to Gραι~οι. He concludes from that that the change of name perhaps has to do with the national uprising of the people, in which also other tribes as the Daoi may have joined in the nation which now together with these was designated as the Daic.

        The choices of Dak- Graek- over Dai-, Grae- as reflects of *daŋ-, *graŋ- seem to have taken place at about the same time.

        as a participle *gr-áŋ- "grown old, ripe, juicy". What verbs *d-áŋ-,
        *sw-éŋ could be participles of is difficult to know. Words so short are suspect of being back formations from compounds, in casu
        1) from the *-daŋ occurring in the Dacian towns in -dava (the town name then being the name of its people)
        and in the various -danes mentioned in Beowulf (Spear-danes, East-danes, West-danes etc),
        *-daŋ being ultimately cognate to Celtic dun-, Germanic *tun-?),
        2) and from the *-sweŋ (swain) occuring in eg boatswain (used much more in eg. Danish, cf. eg. 'svend' "master craftsman"
        corresponding to the German term 'Geselle'
        used in compounds: slagtersvend, murersvend, bagersvend etc

        All this adds up to Dacians (Free Dacians?)
        making up part of either the 10 BCE or 250 CE (Brøndsted, as emended by me) invasion of Denmark, see quote here:
        The main difference between Thracians and Dacians would be that the former slave-traded the latter. If so, the Burebista
        regime, made possible by the discovery of gold(?)
        or by reserving gold for the king's use alone(?)
        would have been an economic disaster to Thracian slave-traders.

        Strabo 6.3.1
        'Now that I have traversed the regions of Old Italy as far as Metapontium, I must speak of those that border on them. And Iapygia borders on them. The Greeks call it Messapia, also, but the natives, dividing it into two parts, call one part (that about the Iapygian Cape) the country of the Salentini, and the other the country of the Calabri. Above these latter, on the north, are the Peucetii and also those people who in the Greek language are called Daunii, but the natives give the name Apulia to the whole country that comes after that of the Calabri, though some of them, particularly the Peucetii, are called Poedicli also. Messapia forms a sort of peninsula, since it is enclosed by the isthmus that extends from Brentesium as far as Taras, three hundred and ten stadia.'

        then the Daunii (Dauoi?) may have spoken Old

        'Travellers in the 19th century were unanimous in identifying Plaka as a heavily "Albanian" quarter of Athens.
        John Cam Hobhouse, writing in 1810, quoted in
        John Freely, Strolling through Athens, p. 247:
        "The number of houses in Athens is supposed to be between twelve and thirteen hundred; of which about four hundred are inhabited by the Turks, the remainder by the Greeks and Albanians, the latter of whom occupy above three hundred houses."
        Eyre Evans Crowe, The Greek and the Turk; or, Powers and prospects in the Levant, 1853:
        "The cultivators of the plain live at the foot of the Acropolis, occupying what is called the Albanian quarter..." (p. 99);
        Edmond About, Greece and the Greeks of the Present Day, Edinburgh, 1855 (translation of La Grèce contemporaine, 1854):
        "Athens, twenty-five years ago, was only an Albanian village. The Albanians formed, and still form, almost the whole of the population of Attica; and within three leagues of the capital, villages are to be found where Greek is hardly understood."
        (p. 32);
        "The Albanians form about one-fourth of the population of the country; they are in majority in Attica, in Arcadia, and in Hydra...."
        (p. 50);
        "The Turkish [sic] village which formerly clustered round the base of the Acropolis has not disappeared: it forms a whole quarter of the town.... An immense majority of the population of this quarter is composed of Albanians." (p. 160)'

        Another interpretation of this story is that these 'Albanians' were the descendants of slaves of the Greek (cf. the name 'Daus' above).
