Etymology of the name of Tosk dialect of Albanian


Senior Member
Hi all!
I'm interested in the origin of the name of the Tosk/toskë dialect in Southern Albania. I would like to know if there is any connection to Latin tuscus "Etruscan" (from TURS, cfr Greek Tyrsēnoi/Tyrrēnoi). It would be interesting to know whether the origin of the word dates back to the Middle Ages or if it is more ancient.
Best regards and thanks in advance.
