Origin:Slavic
Meaning:God of spring; One who is famous for their fury; One who is strong in defending peace
Jarek is a sweet short form of the masculine Slavic names Jarilo, Jaroslav, and Jaromir. Each ancient appellation is composed of Old Slavic elements, which lend Jarek the meanings “god of spring” from Jarilo, “one who is famous for their fury” from Jaroslav, and “one who is strong in defending peace” from Jaromir. Jarilo was a Proto-Slavic deity of the sun, spring, and fertility, but the name grew to mean "fervent worship of God" when Christianity spread. Whether you wish to honor your faith, bestow a playful title for baby’s temper, or know baby will be a warrior for peace, Jarek works in every way.
