I know what “Baashi-bozuuk” means but when the “Baashi” used by itself it doesn’t mean anything, it simply makes no sense. I tried to look it up and it looks like it’s a common Somalian or African surname but could t figure out why it could mean alone. In Turkish by itself it means “head” but doesn’t have a use next to guy’s name like it is used here.
Can we see what your Yatagan looks like ?
