What is the origin of the suffix 'boro' on the end of a word?

Answer

The origin of the suffix 'Boro' at the end of a word relates to the word 'town'. It was another shorter way to say borough. Borough comes from the Latin word 'burgus' which means fortress or fortified city. To go even further back the word 'burgus' comes from the Greek word 'pyrgos' which means fortress or castle.
