Derived from the word kosa, or "hair", as a symbol of youth and good health. It denotes the parents' desire for the child to have luscious, beautiful hair or a girl that was born with lots of hair on her head. The most renowned Kosara was Bulgarian princess Theodora Kosara who fell in love with Jovan Vladimir, the ruler of an early medieval Serbian principality of Duklja who had been defeated and taken prisoner of Bulgarian Tsar Samuel. Their love story is the subject of one of the most romantic tales of early Serbian literature.
