• I would assume Greek or Eastern European.
  • The original version is probably Vratislov. It might be from Bohemia in the Czechoslovak region .
  • I agree with Someguy, the original is vratislov, which is slavik. =]
  • It sounds Greek, but: - the capital of the Slovak Republic is Bratislava, and since the B and V in many languages are interchangeable, there you go - the Polish town Wroclaw is also said to have been Vratislavia before - also, Preslav is a bulgarian city (and first name), there is a famous singer named Preslava in Bulgaria, switch around the letters a bit and sound you have Breslav, Vreslav or whatever vrat in some slavic languages means neck, while vrata is a door... yet I think that the name Preslav (and its derivations) has more to do with "Predslav", pred meaning front, and slav meaning slav Also keep in mind that some of the Southern Slavs who live in Northern Greece have adapted their originally slavic names (sometimes forcefully) to sound like Greek names. For example, Georgi Ivanov would become Georgios Joannopoulos, or something like that. This might be possible here too.
