EtymologyEdit

Borrowed from Old Church Slavonic Владимѣръ (Vladiměrŭ), from Proto-Slavic *Voldiměrъ (which see for more), equivalent to Old Church Slavonic владь (vladĭ, power) (which is from Proto-Indo-European *wal (be strong)) + мѣръ (měrŭ, great), changed by folk etymology into миръ (mirŭ, peace). Compare the inherited Old East Slavic Володимѣръ (Volodiměrŭ).

PronunciationEdit

  • IPA(key): [vlɐˈdʲimʲɪr]
