I have a teen-aged daughter named Sevda whom we adopted from Bulgaria. Her birthmom was Turkish and her birthdad was Bulgarian. She has an English class assignment to find the origin/meaning of her name and we are having trouble finding info. I was told in Bulgaria that 1) her name was Turkish and derived from the word "Sev" meaning infatuated love, but was also told that 2) her name is Bulgaria and means "precious." We could probably make something up to satisfy her teacher, but we are interested in finding the real origin/meaning? Can anyone help?
