Basically means "Nice to People", "milyi" (MEE-lyi) means "nice", "sweet" or "darling", "lyud"/"l'ud" means "people". Has absolutely nothing to do with "princess".

Shortens to Luda (LYU-da) or Mila (MEE-la).

Milla Jovovich's name in Serbian is Milica which is a diminutive of Mila meaning dear. Not Ludmila. Mila is a nickname of Milica in Serbia.

The older spelling form is Lidmila.
Pronounced as "Leed-mee-la" (short -ee-) or "Loodmila" (short -oo-).

I think it's a nice simple name and it's weird how every Luda (Ludmila) I meet is beautiful.

The first time I read this, I thought it said "flavour of the people". Even though this name has a nice meaning, it is rather clunky.

The name Ludmila is also used in Georgia.

In Georgian, Ludmila is written as: ლუდმილა.

This name would suit a Brazilian young woman of Japanese descent very well.

This - Lida - has been my name for many years. I've loved it. It's somewhat timeless, and nobody really has it, yet it is not a strange name and seems familiar to everyone once they hear it. It's feminine yet strong. I grew up being told it meant "Beloved by the people". Maybe that's not 100% accurate, but it's good enough for me.

The only problem with it is that when people give it a careless runthrough they will call me "Linda" but they don't make that mistake twice as it's not a hard name to remember.
