Zlatan

Zlatan

Zlatan is a male given name of South-Slavic origin. It is typical for all Slavic countries in the Balkans, namely Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Republic of Macedonia and Serbia. The name is particularly common in Bosnia because it is ethnically neutral (i.e. it is shared by Bosniaks, Serbs and Croats). The name is derived from the South-Slavic word "zlato" - from the Old-Slavic *"zolto" (gold). The ancient form of the name is "Zoltan", which is still preserved in some non-Slavic countries like Hungary.

The meaning of the name is simply "Golden" or "He who is made of gold".

The female form of the name is Zlata which is very popular among the Bosniaks and also in Bulgaria.

Variations

In Bulgarian the male variations "Zlatin", "Zlatko" and "Zlato" are common. As well as the female "Zlatka" - diminuted from "Zlata".
