Meaning & History
Medieval Slavic form of Przybysław. Also take note that some sources each list a different meaning for the first element. Some say it means "pierced" or "breaking" (in the sense of destroying something), while others say it means "more, much more, multiple" (in the sense of abundance). Yet another source states it means "against" and a single source states that it means "to help". The last one seems most unlikely, but all the others have an outward resemblance (more or less) to the Polish word that means "to arrive, to come", so that might explain the confusion.
