Meaning & History
The first element of this name is possibly derived from Proto-Slavic svin'a or svinьja meaning "swine, pig, hog". Also compare Serbo-Croatian svinja, Polish świnia and Slovak sviňa, all of which mean "swine, pig, hog". The second element is derived from Slavic mir "peace". Also note that according to some sources, this name is an older (or a variant) form of Zvonimir.
