What the fuck story? I am also Turkish and there is no such thing. Turkeys were probably given this name because they resemble a bird from turkey. Also, how we were not conquered? From the 16th century to the 20th century, we constantly lost land. Arabs made us Muslims by sword. Leave these bullshit.
@tornikef There are two theories for the derivation of the name turkey, both of which may be correct, according to Columbia University professor of Romance languages Mario Pei. One theory is that when Europeans first encountered turkeys in America, they incorrectly identified the birds as a type of guineafowl, which were already being imported into Europe by Turkish merchants via Constantinople and were therefore nicknamed Turkey coqs. The name of the North American bird thus became turkey fowl or Indian turkeys, which was then shortened to just turkeys.A second theory arises from turkeys coming to England not directly from the Americas, but via merchant ships from the Middle East, where they were domesticated successfully. Again the importers lent the name to the bird; Middle Eastern merchants were called Turkey merchants as much of that area was part of the Ottoman Empire. Hence the name Turkey-cocks and Turkey-hens, and soon thereafter, turkeys.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkey_(bird)
@tornikef Learn English you dumb, what you mean we were Arabs between 16 century between 20 century? We were Ottoman Empire during that time and fighting against crusades you dumb fuck, we were never been invaded or conquered by anyone. What you trying to say is "getting influenced by Arabs for many years" sadly Ottoman Empire was influenced by Arabs and Persians but they spoke Turkish and they knew they were Turkish, they seperated theirselves from Arabs too. Mal adam 16. yy ile 20. yy arasında biri bizi işgal mi etti gerzek? Önce tarih öğren, buraya gelmiş fet edildik diyor mal, Türkler tarihte hiç bir zaman fet edilmemistir başka bir devlet tarafından, senin dediğin Araplar tarafından manipüle edilmektir İngilizce öğren adam gibi yaz.
Thanks for the valuable information and sorry for the reply above lol, it's hard to deal with stupid ignorants sometimes. Between 16. cc to 20th century, we were Ottoman Empire and we were never been conquered however there are some Turks here today who don't lik Ottomans because they believe Ottomans were influenced by Arabs and it caused our own culture to be changed and be similar with Arab culture so that's what he meant by saying "we were conquered by Arabs" it's actually we were "influenced by them" dude's English is low just nevermind him.Yeah the information and source u gave makes more sense, tbh I never saw this bird in Turkey :D whenever I look at it's wikipedia it says it's origin is from South America but most propably it can be like how u say since Ottoman Merchants were pretty much famous around those years.
We were not influenced by the Arabs, the Arabs made us Muslims by sword. If you learn the history from Kadir Mısıroğlu, you will disgrace yourself like this. Fortunately they didn't call the penis "turkey". It's chilling too because ahahaha.My English may be bad. There is not only English in the world. Your Georgian is bad. Not knowing English is better than being an idiot.
@tornikef I am not fan of Kadir Mısıroğlu, I am Kemalist and follow Mustafa Kemal Atatürk's path but it doesn't mean I dont like Ottoman Empire, I know my past and I know what is right and what is wrong. You talking about Shamanist Central Asian Turks who were forced into Islam by Arabs and that's true, they weren't conquered tho they were just "invaded" and their lands were looted&razed by the Arab Caliphate. However not all Turks changed their religion like that, there were many Turkic states in Central Asia.. first arrival of Islam religion to Central Asia was like that but others adopted it, they learned it such as Karahan Khanate and Ghaznavid Dynasty, they weren't forced into Islam they adopted it theirselves.. you can't generalize the whole Turkic states cause one only one of them were forced into it. Later Hülagü Khan, leader of Ilkhanate Dynasty invaded Arab lands tho and said "I got revenge of my ancestors revenge"
