Random quote: "Mes, lietuviai, esam mįslinga tauta. Mes vis dar savo dvasioje tebesiblaškom tarp buvusių valdovų imperinės pilies ant Gedimino kalno ir susmegusios į žemę vargdienio lūšnos, vis dar nedrįsdami praverti langų ir mesti drąsų žvilgsnį į Lietuvos rytojaus viziją." Vytautas Alantas (1902 - 1990)

The Prussian-Lithuanian name LIEBRUCKS derives from Lithuanian LIUBRIKAS = "Spürhund/hunting dog".
This is the answer from the highest authority in onomastics in Germany.

I am wondering whether LIEBRUCKS can be derived like this:
Lithuanian LIURBAS (which provided the widespread East-Prussian LORBAS = "cheeky young boy") plus ending UKAS. R and B change places, since LIBRUKAS is pronounced more easily than LIURBUKAS.
