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

Slava is related to Slav, the people of Eastern Europe today. There are lots of -slav names for men and women, and the names were common in Slavic areas. So Slava was a common name. The name is also related to 'slave', as the Romans enslaved the Slavs and took them back to Rome and other places.
