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'), and Slav- meaning 'fame/glory'.
