      Hi, Vladimir,

      a little completion to my previous message, regarding your first name:
      the Slavic root vlad- has the same significance like the Germaic root
      wald-: "to rule" (Russian: vladit', Gothic: waldan, German: [ver-]
      walten). But the Old Germanic root *hludh-/*hluth- (found, as you
      said, also in Hloedr and Lotar) means "renowned, famous", and
      also "loud", being derived from the Indo-European root *kleu-/*klu-
      "to hear, listen" (the source, inter alia, also of the Russian verbs
      slushat'/slyshat' and the noun slukh). This makes more plausible the
      connectin of Slavic "vlad-" rather to the Germanic "wald-" than
      to "hlud-".

        Hi Vladimir,

        Since my own doctoral competence also is in history, even if my
        dissertation also covered archaeology, linguistics, history of
        religion and science of arts, I am not enough specialised to make a
        real etymological derivation. I can however say that the combination
        bo-jarl is quite convincing and normal linguistically and
        historically, even if I have not seen the combination before. It fits
        quite well into known facts in Sweden anyhow.

        Best
        Ingemar
