Jaromir

Jaromír, Jaromir, Jaroměr is a Slavic male given name.

Origin and meaningEdit

Jaromír is a West Slavic given name composed of two stems jaro and mír. The meaning is not definite:

  • Polish jary (archaic) = „spry, young, strong“; mir = „prestige, good reputation“
  • Upper Sorbian jara = „very“; měr = „peace“
  • old-Ruthenian jaro = „sun“; mir = „peace, world“

False etymologyEdit

In the Czech, the name is seemingly composed from two other words. Word Jaro means „spring“ and word mír means „peace“.[citation needed]

VariationsEdit

The female forms are Jaromira or Jaromíra. The short form is Jesko.
