Polish version of my name -Sławomir?

Dobry wieczór wszystkim :)

As a guy of Polish descent who also happens to speak the language and likes the country and the culture, I was wondering - theoretically, how would you translate my name, which, in my native language means "Splendour, Glory, Majesty" into a Polish name?

I'm pretty sure it would be something with a -sław suffix, but I'm not sure about the actual name.

Any ideas? ;)

Dziękuję bardzo :)

My suggest is " Sławomir"

Or Mirosław.

Dang! I just realised that Sław-o-mir and Mir-o-sław are the same name.

It's not thisame
Sławomir it's Sławek shorter.
Mirosław it's Mirek shorter.
Like Ola and Olga isn't thisame name.

Yah I know. But the meaning of the name is the same:
Mir o Sław is just a Sław o Mir spelled backward. :)

I know, I'm not a blonde :P . But the meaning is also opposite and it makes a different.

Thanks :) Any other suggestions? I wonder how accurate stuff like Sławomir or Mirosław would be compared to something like Sławosław, after all my name does not have anything to do with mir - world? Just Sława :P

What about Sobiesław, Jarosław, Stanisław?

mir - world

it's Russian meaning of this word. In Polish it means 'pokój - peace' also 'poważanie - esteem, respect'

So you say Mirosław/Sławomir is actually the closest in meaning? :P

Someone who praises the glory would be called Sławosław, the one who praises the peace would be called Mirosław or Sławomir. I don't know which meaning is closer to the meaning of your name, you have to decide for yourself.

Someone who praises the glory would be called Sławosław, the one who praises the peace would be called Mirosław or Sławomir. I don't know which meaning is closer to the meaning of your name, you have to decide for yourself.

I guess I praise the glory itself, since I supposedly am "full of glory" and "spread glory everywhere I go" (bullsh*t! haha :D) therefore Sławosław should be more appropriate IMO. :) Dziękuję!

The English name with the exact same meaning would be "Rumfred". Not particularly common, but it exists.

Makes perfect sense! "Sław-" = glory + "mir" = peace/world (like Russian) < "Rum-" (> "Ruhm" = glory in German) + "fred" = peace > "Frieden" in German, "fred" in Danish, Swedish and Norwegian:-)
