Happy Belated Name Day, Vilma & Čestmír! Všechno nejlepší k svátku!

On Saturday, Jan. 7th, we honored Vilma, and on Sunday, Jan. 8th, we honored Čestmír.  Happy belated name day, Vilma & Čestmír!

The name Vilma is a form of Wilma, which is the short form of Wilhelmina, which is of Old German origin and means "will, helmet, protection".   German settlers introduced the name Wilhelmina it to America in the 19th century.

A very famous Wilma...

The name Čestmír is of Czech origin and means "fortress".  I have yet to meet a Čestmír, but I am digging the name.
