Meaning:Glorious ruler
Exuding might in two easy syllables, Laszlo is a masculine name not to be bestowed lightly. It first rose to prominence with the great Hungarian king Ladislas I, a figure greatly loved by his people and later canonized as Saint Ladislas. The name derives from the Slavic Vladislav, meaning "glorious ruler"—a wonderfully apt title for the legendary knight-king. As it stands, Laszlo remains a beloved incarnation of the honorable name, leading the way with timeless ideals of chivalry.
