Re: given name "Slawa"? #poland #names

From my collection of births in parts of Slovakia, somewhat south of Galicia, Slawa, written in Hebrew letters as either, סלאווא or סלאווע appears to have been a given "holy name"  for someone with the following secular names: Szeren, Sali, Charlotte (Lotti).  It was not a common name, occurring only 7 times out of my almost 6000 list of births.

Hope this helps a bit,
