Origin[edit]

The name Vladislav literally means One who owns a glory, or simply Famous. It is a composite name derived from two Slavic roots: Vlad- meaning either 'to own' (Ukrainian voloditi (володiти) means 'to own', Polish władać - 'to be in possession of', Russian vladet (владеть) - 'to own'), or 'to rule' (another meaning of Polish władać is 'to rule', Ukrainian vlada (влада) means 'power', 'the government', in Slovak and Czech language, vláda means ruling body, government in modern form, vládnuť (vládnout) means 'to rule', vládca (vládce) is 'ruler'), and slav- meaning 'fame/glory'.
