Hi everyone. In a 1807 book (reprinted) I found a glossary of Italian-Georgian-Albanian words, originally published in 1693.
Angelo Masci, Discorso del consigliere di stato --- sull' origine, i costumi e lo stato attuale degli Albanesi del regno di Napoli, p. 20.

There is one word "Peerndii", corresponding to Italian Dio (God) and Georgian "Ghmerti". I think this Albanian word resembles the Greek "Father Zeus" (gen. Patros Dios). Is (or was) this really an Albanian word? Thanks for any answers.

    It's "perëndi", a real Albanian word. See here. Apparently the etymology is disputed.
