Vladislav (Belarusian: Уладзіслаў (Uładzisłaŭ); Polish: Władysław, Włodzisław; Russian, Bulgarian, Macedonian, Serbian, Ukrainian: Владислав) is a Slavic male given name, sometimes confused with/treated as the same as Ladislav. It is traditionally Latinized as either Vladislaus or (erroneously) Ladislaus, or sometimes Vladislas. Feminine form is Vladislava/Władysława.
In Russia it is often shortened either to Vlad (Влад).
The name is of old Slavic origin, meaning "one who commands fame" from Slavic vlad- (to rule, command) and slav- (glory, fame).
