Zagreb Witches or Coprnice - Part One

NOMEN EST OMEN- THE NAME IS A SIGN

Let's start our story about the witches of Zagreb from their name. In this part of Croatia, it's common to use the word coprnica (tzoh-pehr -neeh-tzah) for a witch. It's kind of a cute word, it doesn't really carry negative connotations. 

Do you know where the name comes from?
