Boy Names of Slavic usage or origin

Slavic names for baby boys, with 409 entries. As the largest ethno-linguistic group in Europe, the Slavic world is a diverse collection of cultures and component Slavic languages, such as Russian, Polish, Serbian and Bulgarian. The Slavs are native to Europe and Asia, and count no less than 300 million Slavic language speakers across these two continents alone. Slavic languages are divided into three main groups – South, West and East. Russian is an Eastern Slavic language and by far the most widely-spoken Slavic language with 145 million speakers. With such diversity in Slavic languages, Slavic names likewise differ slightly in terms of their pronunciation and spelling. Popular Slavic names are a mix of names taken from the saints of the orthodox church and of local historical heroes. Slavic names have also found acceptance in western popular culture.
