Meaning & History
The first element of this name is possibly derived from Old Church Slavonic nuditi "to plague, to intimidate, to force", which is closely related to Old Russian nǫditi "to compel". Also compare modern Serbo-Croatian nuditi "to offer, to bid". They are all said to be ultimately derived from Proto-Slavic nuda "need", which is cognate to Proto-Germanic naudiz "need". The second element of this name is derived from Slavic mir "peace". Also compare Mutimir, which is likely to be closely related etymologically.
