Slavic Names

Slavic names were used by the Slavic peoples of eastern Europe. Until about 1000 AD the Slavs spoke a common language, the ancestor of the Slavic languages of today.

Slavic names are often dithematic, consisting of two elements. For example, the name Bolesław is formed of two elements, boľe = "large" and slava = "glory".
