i'm from Romania, and i don't know if i'm related to anyone with the name urda on this site. But in my mother tongue, Romanian,"urda" means a kind of cheese. I read about this word's ethimology. In one book (The Romanian Ethimologic Dictionary) i found that it comes from turkish "orda", but in a lot of dictionaries they say that the word has unknown etimology, or is a dacic word. ( The Dacians were the people who lived on the land of Romania before the first century AD) I'd like to know if in other languages, "urda" means something. Also I found that there is a village named Urda in the south of Romania.
