Broklosegasse, Brodlosegasse, Bruchlozegasse
Referred to as Broklosengasse in 1415 and Bruchlozegasse in 1416, later as Brocklosengasse which is the name that remained while Gdansk was German. During the 18th century, the name "Brodlosengasse" game up, probably in jest, meaning literally "street of the poor" (brotlos in German = breadless).
The origin of the name is hard to come by, but most likely by the old German word brok, meaning swamp. Other street names in the same area hint at this having been a swampy area. While the ending "los" meanings "without" in German, it is unlikely that that was the origin of the name. Most likely. it stemmed from the older German word "lot," meaning "land in the shape of a gusset" (i.e. triangular).
Maybe that's why the street is called Mokra now, which literally translates to wet.
