Milan

Origin: Slavic

Милан (Russian, Serbian, Bulgarian, Macedonian)

Meaning: from Slavic element milu meaning :gracious, dear”. According to Wikipedia, it also has Indian and Latin origins; in Hindu it’s supposed to mean “eager”, “worthy”, or “competitor”, all coming from an expression meaning “a coming together”. In Latin, it’s supposed to mean “eager and laborious”

In Slavic-speaking countries, Milan is strictly a male name with Milana or Milena as its feminine counterparts, although it’s also been used for girls, probably inspired by the city in Italy (whose name comes from a different source- either from Latin or Celtic roots)
