Vladimir

Vladimir comes from Slavic element vladeti meaning “to rule” (derived from Proto-Indo-European *wal “to be strong”) combined with meru (great, famous) essentially meaning “great ruler” or “famous ruler”. However, the second element has also been associated with miru (peace, world) so the name could also mean “peaceful ruler” or “world ruler”.

Origin: Proto-Indo-European
