Comments for the name Libuše

Comments for LIBUŠE:

A legendary Czech princess with a prophetic ability was named Libuše. Because this legend is rather old (I think it was first recorded in the beginning of 12th century by the chronicler Kosmas), I believe it isn't just a pet form of Libìna, but more likely simply originating from the same source. ("libý" is a bit ancient Czech word for "pleasant").

Libuše is an Old Czech name. It is derived from adjective libý, the base of which is Slavonic ljub meaning "love", "lovable". Related names are Ljuba, Liběna and Liboslava.
