The South Slavic name Ratko is today usually said to derive from "rat" meaning "war". Originally however, it was more often than not an alternative (phonetic) spelling of Radko, since they are pronounced in pretty much the same way: RAHT-kaw. So, etymologically Ratko derives from "rad" or "rat", the two forms having merged.
