Wenczeslaw is a Slavic name for boys. Meaning “greater glory,” it’s possibly a variant of Wenceslaus, a name held dear by the Czech population. Wenceslaus I was one of the most beloved rulers of Bohemia, so much so that upon his death, the people made him a martyr and saint almost immediately. The story of him braving winter weather to give alms on St. Stephen Day even became the subject of a Christmas carol, “Good King Wenceslas_.”_ With such a fine role model fronting the name, Wenczeslaw can inspire your little one to do good.
