Perun

Origin: Slavic

Meaning: “thunder”. I’ve also seen it listed as coming from an Indo-European root word parg meaning “to strike, to slay”, or perhaps coming from another Proto-Indo-European root word perku “oak”.

In Slavic mythology, Perun is the god of thunder and lightning and the highest god in the Slavic pantheon. He’s also associated with the oak tree.
