Hi Ananda.

For what it's worth: the Teutonic word, borg, berg, bjerg, meaning a mountain and/or a fortress is allied to barrow, meaning a hill or a mound, from which comes borough and the French word for citizen: bourgeois. In Danish a borger means citizen, eg: Victor Borge, Borgerkrig; civil war.

I can find no accepted connection to the French word for shepherd: berger, but I'm sure the word derived from the Gothic bairgan, meaning to hide, bury or keep, as in a mound or barrow.
