    Name Meaning

    Some characteristic forenames: Slovenian Milan.

    Slovenian: from an old spelling of mrhar, a derivative of mrha ‘carrion’, used as a nickname meaning ‘bear’ (see Medved ), as an occupational name for a flayer (knacker), and as a derogatory nickname for a hunter. The name could possibly also be an unflattering nickname for someone regarded as a vulture or carrion crow (in a figurative sense).
