248 Slavic Baby Names With Meanings

Do you want a name that’s a unique spin on names that you hear in your day-to-day life? How about going for a Slavic name, which has some beautiful and unusual variations of regular names.

Slavic first names are exotic, a bit difficult to pronounce, but full of historical significance. The best part is that each Slavic name has its name day, which is celebrated by the family as a second birthday.

In the pre-Christian period, children were given a substitution name which they had to bear until they were seven to ten years old. The purpose of this name was to deflect the attention from the baby and protect him from evil powers. The practice came into being because of the high mortality rate of young ones at that time. The child who crossed ten years was given a new name during the ritual first haircut. The tradition is not followed now. Parents are free to bestow any name they like at any point in time to their child.

As for the convention, a Slavic name consists of a given name, followed by the patronymic, and then the family name or surname.
