To derive such names as Jaroslav or Jaromír etc. from the word "jaro" is common misconception even among Czechs. Actually it comes from old Czech word "jarý", which means strong and bold. Word "jaro" really does mean "spring" but, only in !modern! Czech language, so it has (and can not have) nothing to do with the origin of these antique names. So e.g. Jaroslav we can correctly explain as "famous for his strength." And by the way Jaroslav is my father's name. :) [noted -ed]
