    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smiljan

    The fact that there's even village with the same name in Bulgaria, directly confirms Slavic origin of the name.

    I don't know where did you get that info that his mother was Vlach, all I can get is that she was Serb:

    Tesla was born to Serbian parents Father Milutin Tesla, a priest in the Serbian Orthodox Church, Metropolitanate of Sremski Karlovci and Đuka Mandić. His paternal origin is thought to be either of one of the local Serb clans in the Tara valley, or from the Herzegovinian noble Pavle Orlović[8] His mother, Đuka, daughter of a Serbian Orthodox Church priest, came from a family domiciled in Lika and Banija, but with deeper origins to Kosovo. She was talented in making home craft tools and memorized many Serbian epic poems, but never learned to read.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikola_Tesla

    The spelling I used for that village is the Latin way of spelling it and is not "immaginary"...like most of the region probably had latin-ish names before slavs came.
    All we know are the names Romans recorded due to their rule at that time, but what were the original toponyms, before the Roman conquest is mostly unknown.

    Sous prétexte d'une étymologie germanique, vous prenez pour la Prusse tel village de Lorraine.
    Les noms de Vienne (Vindobona), de Worms (Borbitomagus), de Mayence (Mogontiacum) sont gaulois; nous ne vous réclamerons jamais ces villes; mais, si un jour les Slaves viennent revendiquer la Prusse proprement dite, la Poméranie, la Silésie, Berlin, par la raison que tous ces noms sont slaves, s'il font sur l'Elbe et sur l'Oder ce que vous avez fait sur la Moselle, s'ils pointent sur la carte les villages obotrites ou vélatabes, qu'aurez-vous à dire?

There are many Romanians named Teslea and it is after a profession (construction). Romania's famous aeronautical innovator Henri Coanda (who invented jet power) wrote how he met Tesla and they spoke Romanian together, actually Tesla spoke istro-romanian, a dialect, but they understood each other perfectly. It is an absolute certainty!

    Anyway, I know i can't prove it and besides all Serbs are Vlachs mixed with Slavs so it really is a moot point. All i know is that all Serbs were supposed to have Serbicized names after some point. You do know he is from an istro-Romanian village "Similia"...you guys just claim our history like the rest of europe has always done.

    I, FE am closer to modern Serbs, by far, than Romanians from Bucharest, lets say.

    In reality, he said he was Serb and Serb he was, by nationality, and he lived in Croatia...but at very least, his mother's ethnicity was Vlah.

    Basically, we can all claim a piece of this great man, because i think we can all agree-there is more than enough to go around.

    Forza Balkanica!
    as guy said below is right! i dont get why you think tesla is not Serb last name maybe not the most common but still they are found. guess if you find any lastname could say its uncommon when looking for individuals with it. well we dont suppress anything again never heard of any incidents but if you stasrt acting like huns, shiptars, gypsys or any other problematic minority willl be treated as such. romanians are Serbia's minority you are supposed to cater to the majority of the country not the other way around. so now to your logic why dont you stop oppressing Serbs in Romania??

    I didn't know we were suppressing Serb language or identity but I wouldn't be opposed to being educated on the topic, unless you are mostly exaggerating.

    I don't believe we are a problem minority in any balkan nation and we are in every one of them, sometimes in significant numbers.

    The Vlahs are mountain pastoralists since the beggining of the neolithic and are among the innovators of this sort of lifestyle so we are not invaders and have been there longer than anybody else. In fact if it were not for this mountain lifestyle we would never have been able to survive and certainly not have been able to maintain our language.

    Our two peoples are brothers and Romania is one of the biggest supporters of the Serbian effort to join the EU, as well as the Serbian position concerning Kosovo. We also did lots to help you during your war effort, even during the NATO bombings. Like I said before the pure Romanians, like myself, are closer to modern Serbs than we are to most modern Romanians. This is an indication, to me, that Serbs are more part "old euros" than they are Slavs.

    I love Serbs and Serbia, but I also love the rest of the "yugoslavians". It saddens me that you guys had so much beef with your Croatian brothers. The muslims, I get, but you guys really shot yourselves in the foot by not coming together and building the strongest nation of the Balkans. Balkanization will not make you as strong as you would have been had you stayed together, in my view. You used to be well ahead of Romania in most areas and now you have been overtaken by us.

    Tesla was a great man and I am forced to concede you guys have the best claim to him, but we Vlahs are also very proud of him and consider him as part of our family too.

    well it seems to be popular now to say that a minority is abused by the country that they live in. it is an EU and american led creation yet the hypocrits dont see themselves.Serbs being abused i was saying that since youre rambling about vlah abuse, as i has stated before i didnt know of any incidents against them. theyve never been attacked, complained about etc.. even by our skins. only problem i heard is with the church they want to have their own orthodox church rather than go to Serb one and they didnt get it. huns actually have signs in their language in vojvodina schools etc.. yet they are the most problematic group in vojvodina. and they should of been expelled like the germans were after WWII. but then again with the idiots we have in power nothing would suprise me that they treat good minority worse than bad one.

    Pure romanians are closer to Serbs than modern Romanians what????

    Your support for EU not needed or wanted im sorry but i think serbs have had enough of commie unions and EU(SSR) is just that. first mistake creating kingodom of yugoslavia again could of taken a lot of land for ourselves and left croatia and slovenia for the dogs so to speak. second mistake was commies.Have beef with croats well they started it in 1940's or in WWII with the Ustashe and killing like a million Serbs. modern persepctive thats like 1.5-2 million today. but the commie scum named tito and other of those fuckers want peace with the croats or create yugoslavia biggest mistake instead of that we should of taken bosnia, slavonia and all the other land that croatia recieved from Serbia during the first Yugoslav republic and destroyed their country so that it still couldnt recover. and today wed have peace and absolutely no problems and Serbia would probably be 10x better off. why should i like croats when we tried to help them yet they stabbed us in the back and destoryed my country??? So that is my opinion of the other yugoslavs. your ticked at russia for bing imperialistic towards you so what should we say about these "people"???

    No, It is slavic.

    We have the almost same exact name in Poland.

    Ciesla.

    Pronounced "Tiesla" or rather "Tea-sla"

    Like the Polish model in German Claudia Ciesla.

    Here is how she pronounces her name.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MkA4nrwb13o

    We have other vowel ending names too. Like Theodor Kaluza. Which Kaluza means Pool in Polish.

    Apparently there are some Tesla's in Poland. Might be a Germanized version of Ciesla.
    It is probably similar roots in Serbian. As we as Slavs share alot of similar names & words.

    Alicja Tesla, Warszawa
    Piotr Tesla, Warszawa
    Lidia Tesla, Wolow
    # What about Ellis Island?:
    in a one minute I see also few from Poland (as Austria, Galicia in 19th c), for eg:
    Jan Tesla from Lutowiska (from Austria) arrv. 1913 as 28 y old

    ---------- Post added 2010-06-27 at 23:38 ----------

    Tesla was def in the top 5 scientists.

    I would say top 1.

    Why? Because he beat Thomas Edison in the Current wars & Made a better lightbulb than Edison.

    Tesla had better Inventions than did Edison & His Inventions are still advanced by today's standard.

    I consider Invention higher than Physcists like Einstein or Newton. For the reason that they use physics to invent something.
