The paper deals with the etymological analysis of two compound words which are attested in Serbian and Croatian anthroponymy: Serb. Odribog and Croat. Odribožić. The form of these anthroponyms is trivial for Slavonic compound words with the component *bogъ, but Odribog and Odribožić seem to be ideologically isolated from other similar names, being borrowed from the Iranian vocabulary. Presumably above mentioned personal names reflect Iran. *Tīrī-baga- or *Ātr-baga-. The particularity of personal names, reviewed here, is that they can be qualified with high degree of certainty as going back to a Western Iranian source (the version of reflection in these names of Western Iranian *Ādar-bag). Probably this source could be the vocabulary of a Western Iranian ethnic group, which intruded to the Balkans, being a part of Bulgarian union of tribes.
