The name "BRANISLAV" is a compound of two Serbian words. "Brani" is short for verb braniti which means defend, and "slav" from slava which means glory.

The name Branislav, is one of many who end with -slav, and all such names are used in Croatia, which the administrator obviously forgot to write in the usage description. In fact, it's more used in Croatia, for such is the custom of the land. Although all Slavic people use Slavic names, some typical ones are more used in one country than the other. For example: Slavoljub, with the ending -ljub, is more typical for Serbia than Croatia.
Therefore the administrator should keep in mind to mention most Slavic lands when writing the usage of names ending with -slav, Croatia being an example of a land who uses all of the names with this ending, unlike some lands mentioned, who only use a few.
Also, although slav is short for glorious, slav also refers to a Slavic man, therefore the name "Brani-slav", also means a "Slavic Defender".
