Etymology[edit]

From Czech Vltava; 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), corresponding to Proto-Germanic *wilþijaz (wild) + *ahwō (water);[1] older texts have spellings such as Fuldaha (in 872), Wultha (1113), Wlitaua (1125). (However, compare Ltava.)
