What does Borussia mean?
"Borussia" is the latin word for Preußen (a former steadily extending German kingdom). In art and literature, the former kingdom was figuratively often presented as a woman, who, of course, bore the sounding name "Borussia". Around the turn of the century many clubs established bearing names like "Westfalia", "Rhenania" or "Germania" to express their solidarity to a certain region.
Referring to BVB, having been formed on an Advent Sunday in 1909 (19 December 1909), the naming was probably a tool to demonstrate the support of Hoesch (no longer existing chemicals company) district's immigrant's home countries.
What does BVB mean?
BVB means Ballspiel-Verein Borussia (Borussia club for ball games). The correct club name is "BV Borussia 09 e.V. Dortmund", with "09" pointing to 1909, the year of the club's foundation.
Many fans see a further meaning in the abbreviation "BVB" and say it stands for "Borussen vom Borsigplatz" (Borussen [Borussia fans] from Borsigplatz [a square in a Northern district of Dortmund's city]) because the club was found in Borsigplatz, in the North of Dortmund, in the restaurant called "Zum Wildschütz" on 19 December 1909.
