Stanislav (given name)
|Meaning||stani ("to become") + slava ("glory, fame")|

Stanislav or Stanislaus (Latinized form) is a very old given name of Slavic origin, meaning someone who achieves glory or fame. It is common in the Slavic countries of Central and South Eastern Europe. The name has spread to many non-Slavic languages as well, such as French (Stanislas), German, and others.
The feminine form is Stanislava.
The English name Stanley is popularly regarded as—and often thought to be—the Anglicized form. But this is historically and linguistically inaccurate; the two names have entirely different origins and meanings.
Variants: Stasław, Tasław.
Its feminine form is Stanisława.

It can easily be Anglicized to "Stanley" in English with the nickname "Stan" (as in Stan Musial), even if "Stanley" has an alternative English origin. "Stoshu" is sometimes used as an anglicized spelling.
