Vladimir is a masculine name of Slavic origin, meaning “to rule with greatness,” “peaceful ruler,” and “ruler of the world.” Vladimir comes from the Old Church Slavonic name Volodiměrŭ and is incredibly popular throughout Slavic and Russian-speaking countries. Emanating a vampiric aura, the notorious Vlad the Impaler inspired Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Vladimir’s desirable connotations have earned its favor amongst politicians and monarchs, including Russian President Vladimir Putin and the ruler of the First Bulgarian Empire, Vladimir-Rasate. It’s clear that the name Vladimir inspires leadership in its bearer, but instilling the value of peace in baby will be a worthy pursuit of any parent.
