Vadim is a unique name, NOT a truncation of Vladimir. Vadim comes from the Slavic vedet. It still exists in Czech, Polish but it is mainly popular in Russia.
(Slavic meaning) "A powerful ruler" and in addition "the knowing one"
(Greek meaning) "deceiving and unpredictable"

Not a form of Vladimir. It actually means "driven" (archaic).

This name isn't so popular these days. I don't know many Vadims. My father's name is Vadim but everyone calls him Vadik. This is a nice and easy name but for some reason a lot of people mispronounce it.

A Czech handbook on names, by Miroslava Knappová, claims it could mean "maligned". But I guess it's not a source of much significance, when it itself says it's "possibly".

The core root of this name means to "attract" and "possess" in old-Russian ("vad"it'). So the bearer of this name is essentially someone who attracts people and is loved by them or just a popular person-magnet.

Vadim Schneider played Sébastien Dubé in the tennis-circuit themed dramatic series 15/Love on YTV. On September 8, 2003, Schneider and his co-star Jaclyn Linetsky were driving to the filming of an episode of 15/Love when the minivan lost control and collided with oncoming traffic. Both actors were killed in the accident.
