Proto-Slavic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Superficially a compound of *vold- +‎ *-měrъ. In both structure and semantics, the name is strikingly similar to the Germanic Waldemar, Woldemar (pre-Old High German *waldimӕ̄r-), for which reason some sources speculate it may be a borrowing or adaptation of that name.[1]

Proper noun[edit]

*Voldiměrъ m

  1. A male given name, Vladimir
