Etymology[edit]

From Czech Vltava. Vltava is cognate to Moldau, the German name for the river, and it is sometimes suggested that both words derive from Old High German wilt awa, wilt aha (wild river) (from Proto-Germanic *ahwō);[1] older texts have spellings such as Fuldaha (in 872), Wultha (1113), Wlitaua (1125). (However, compare Ltava.)

Proper noun[edit]
