Vadim has a root in Slavic vedet which means "to know". Vadim the Bold, a legendary East Slavic hero who inspired eponymous works by Yakov Knyazhnin, Vasily Zhukovsky, Alexander Pushkin, Mikhail Lermontov, and others. Roger Vadim, a French film director http://www.babynology.com/meaning-vadim-m6.html ---- There are a few different meanings, here they are: VADIM (pronounced vuh-DEEM): A rare Russian name which some etymologists believe must have its root in Slavic vadit, vedet, or wiedziec, meaning "to know," because pagan magicians were called veduny, "the knowing ones." http://www.20000-names.com/male_v_names.htm Meaning: To blame. http://www.babynamesworld.com/meaning_of_Vadim.html VADIM Gender: Masculine Usage: Russian Other Scripts: Вадим (Russian) Pronounced: vah-DEEM [key] Meaning unknown, possibly related to the Slavic element volod "rule", or possibly derived from an Old Norse source. http://www.behindthename.com/name/vadim A rare Russian name which some etymologists believe must have its root in Slavic vadit, vedet, or wiedziec, meaning "to know," because pagan magicians were called veduny, "the knowing ones." http://www.names-meanings.net/name/vadim.html Name Meaning: Meaning to accuse http://www.babynamesocean.com/russian_names/meaning_of_Vadim.html Name Vadim Russian meaning a powerful ruler http://www.all-babynames.com/meaning-of-name-Vadim.html Hope this is enough, but as you can see there are different possibilities. I would like to know myself, as my name is Vadim. I think its "to know" but I have nothing to support that guess with. Good luck in your search.
