Male slavic names and their meaning

Today, most Slavic names are completely forgotten. In Russia, according to statistics, only 5% of children name Slavic names. A return to the Slavic traditions of naming is not only an appeal to the roots, but also an opportunity to improve one’s family, because the sound vibrations of a person’s name influence his character and destiny.

Male Slavic names: traditions and facts

In ancient Russia, each person had two names: false (for all) and secret (for close people). This tradition allowed to protect the child from evil spirits and unkind people. A false Slavic name was usually unattractive, but a secret name was given only in adolescence, when the main character traits of a person were formed.

Male Slavic names and their meaning

Slavic names were divided into groups:

  1. Names from the surrounding natural world (Pike, Wolf, Eagle, Walnut, etc.)
  2. Names that indicate the order of birth of the child in the family (Pervusha, Vtorak, Tretyak, etc.)
  3. Names that signify human traits and qualities (Brave, Stoyan, etc.)
  4. Names of Slavic gods and goddesses (Lada, Yarilo, etc.)
  5. Two-base names are the most common group (Svyatoslav, Tihomir, Ratibor, Yaropolk, Vsevolod, Bogdan, Svetozar, etc.), as well as their derivatives (Dobrynya, Yarilka, Miloneg, etc.).
