"Khoroat/Khuruat" is found in a lot of places, and it's strange that it would be found in so many places.
Its not strange. Obviously some languages tend to deform Sarmatian (Serbian) name into Croatian name. Plus, much later, it got its political dimension.
I know. You may say but Croats exist. But do they exist? Wasn`t Poland deluded with communist at least fraction of time and now Poles think differently, return to its natural state? On the other side, one may hope to delude all South-East European Serbs to become Croats. Sure, in that case, Lusatian Serbs would be also convert into Croats, just to make the point and create one new world deprived of Serbs and then also Slavs. Why? Because Croat delusion goes with Germanic identity, not with Slavic. Replace then Polish `legends about Sarmatians` into `legends about Croatians` and you proved to Poles then they are Germanics in origin, so they should return to ``their identity`` and ``Croats will show them way``.
Or be reasonable. Think this way. Serbs and Croats share same genetics. Serbs and Croats share language that is since known time known as Serbian language and it is Shtocavian Slavic dialect. Forget Serbo-Croatian or Croatian language. Those are political constructs. Now, those who started with Croatian nation said themselves, Croatian are Chakavian or Kajkavian dialects. Then linguists said those are mixtures of Slovenian and Serbian language or deformed Slovenian. Then you also have that thing that Vatican and many other sources used name of Croat/Hrvat to designate Catholic Serbs. Turks used name `Caur/Kaur` to designate Serbs.
