    Default Given names containing root meaning "fame, glory" in your language

    In one of the discusstion Elias posted the following quote from a book he was reading:

    The self-assertive longing for “prestige,” “respect,” and “fame” are no doubt genetically-based traits which evolved in response to long periods of adaptive selective pressures. But I will argue that the pursuit of prestige needs to be examined as a psychosomatic or mental disposition on the part of humans to achieve validation and recognition from other human beings. I will also argue that this disposition assumed a heightened, more intensive expression amongst the aristocratic culture of the Indo-European speakers who gradually infiltrated Europe after 4000 BC. The “noblest” ideal of Indo-European aristocratic warriors was the pursuit of prestige through the performance of heroic acts in proud contempt for one’s biological survival.

    ...

    I will follow Hegel in arguing that the desire for recognition, not the pursuit of one’s evolutionary advantage, is the quintessentially human desire. This desire can be so overwhelming that one is prepared to fight to the death for it – to risk one’s biological life and one’s economic happiness to satisfy a non-biological desire. I will dwell on this point by drawing on Alexandre Kojeve’s interpretation of Hegel’s own take on the “state of nature” as a “fight to the death for pure prestige”. I will suggest that the Indo-European speakers who began to migrate into Europe roughly after 3500 BC, coalescing with and subordinating the “ranked” Neolithic cultures of this region, were a uniquely aristocratic people dominated by emerging chieftains for whom fighting to gain prestige was the all-pervading ethos. This culture will be interpreted as “the Western state of nature” and as the primordial source of Western restlessness. — Ricardo Duchesne, The Uniqueness of Western Civilization, ISBN 9004192484, pp. 40-51
    This quote inspired me to write the following:


    "If so then we should look for the trail of names containing root meaning "fame".

    I can think of Heracles:

    The name Hercules is from a Latin translation of Greek Herakles. Herakles' name is translated 'the glory of Hera' or 'the fame of Hera', the prefix of his name relates to Hera, wife of Zeus, the suffix is from Greek -kles, related to Latin cluere, variously translated; 'to listen', 'to hear oneself called', 'to be spoken of', 'called upon'. The second element in Hercules' name comes from the Indo-European root *kleu- 'To hear'.
    ... Cleopatra:

    Cleopatra's name is a transcription of a Macedonian Greek name. I have the advantage of studying both Greek and Egyptian, and can guess instantly what the first part of her name means. It is from the Greek word 'kleos,' meaning 'fame.'

    To the Ancient Greeks 'kleos' was the ultimate goal of the true hero; they sought to be known by all for having defeated invincible warriors, slept with Gods and in general for being the greatest man/woman ever to have lived. 'Kleos' is fame, honour and glory. It was not always obtained in using just means however, there was usually an element of killing and adultery involved! Odysseus is of particular not here because he didn't seek 'kleos' through the above methods, but rather through his 'many wiles.' But that's another story.

    Anyway. That gives us the first part of KLEO-patra's name. The second part is from the epithet 'patroklos,' meaning 'the one who has attained the fame of their predecessors', literally, their 'father-fame.' So Cleopatra is a hybrid of two phrases meaning 'fame/honour/glory' and 'the one having the fame/honour/glory of their predecessors.' That completes her Greek name.
    ... Chlodvig/Clovis/Ludvig/Louis:

    (...) combination of two old German words "hlod' (fame : glory) and "vig" (battle : warrior).
    ... and few Slavonic names:

    I can not think of any. The names of rulers often were two stemmed, related to meanings "nation", "riding", "thought", "mentioning", "being", "standing, suffering", "campaign, crusade", "defending", "caching", "much, many", "hearing", "war", etc.
