Xerxes and Artaxerxes.
The Polish reflex of *slāvъ is so gnarly! Sounds so mellifluous and powerful, not to mention like French for thirst, one of the exceedingly few French words I actually like.I like ancient polish names
1) BOGUSŁAW : Means "glory of God" from the Slavic elements bogu "god" + slava "glory".
2) BOLESŁAW Derived from the Slavic elements bolye "more, greater" + slava "glory".
3) MIECZYSŁAW, Derived from the Slavic element mechi "sword" combined with slava "glory". "He who earned glory by sword"
4) BORZYWOJ, Borzuj - Borz(y)- ("to fight") + "-woj, -uj" ("warriror"). "fighting warrior"
5) MŚCIWOJ, Mszczujwoj – „mścić (się)” (to avenge) + "woj”(warrior) - "vengful warrior"
6) WOJOSŁAW, Wojesław, Wojisław, Wosław – "Woj-" („wojownik”) + "-sław" "he who earned fame in war"

I really dig Ярослав, both because of its meaning & because it has an exact Indic cognate (Ugrišravas, a character in the Mahabharata), yet another hint at the early Iranian-Slavic suzerainty.
I agree, so do me a favor and don't 'sociate my name with crap food less you want me to rap rude, ya dig?I never heard of that! Pretty bitchin'.
I don't think it sounds particularly elegant. I had never thought about it before, but in fact, it sounds a bit like a dog's bark to me — it's basically "waf" plus an S in the beginning.The way it sounds. Elegant, & clearly foreign but could almost be English.
Did you mean to post this on a different thread?Any University Challenge watchers?
Webb for Corpus Christi is quite brilliant for a young lad, so sharp. But going forward one brilliant player won't cut it, they'll come up against a good team like Manchester or another Oxbridge team and they'll lose even if they indeed have the best player of the 28 teams this year.
