Vatren means “passionate, fiery” in Serbian and Croatian. This is a rare name.
Vedran means “cheerful, clear” in Serbian and Croatian. The feminine form is Vedrana.
Velibor means “great battle” in Serbian and Croatian. I have a Russian–American character by this name, a surprise triplet who was pulled out completely detached from his placenta and umbilical cord, unconscious, only one pound, seven ounces. His planned name was Volimir, but his father changed it to Velibor for the powerful, symbolic meaning.
Velichko means “great” in Bulgarian. The feminine form is Velichka.
Velizar is a Bulgarian and rare Serbian form of the Greek name Belisarios, which is of unknown etymology. The feminine forms are Velizarka and Velizara.
Vsevolod is a Russian and Ukrainian name meaning “to rule all.” Velibor’s father has this name. It’s one of my favourite Russian male names, so beautiful, ancient, and quintessentially Slavic. An 11th century grand prince of Kyivan Rus had this name.
Vasilisa is a Russian feminine form of the Greek name Basil (king). This name has always been quite rare, and is almost always given after a character in several famous fairytales. I have a character by this name.
Velina means “great” in Bulgarian. The male form is Velin.
Venera is the Russian, Bulgarian, Ukrainian, Bosnian, Serbian, Croatian, Georgian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Azeri, and Albanian form of the Latin name Venus (love, sexual desire).
Veneta means “wreath” in Bulgarian.
Vesela means “cheerful” in Bulgarian. The male Serbian and Croatian form is Veselko, and the male Macedonian, Bulgarian, and Serbian form is Veselin.
Vesna means “spring” in many Slavic languages, and “messenger.” She was a Slavic spirit associated with springtime. I have two characters by this name, a Serbian and a Russian–American.
