Etymology of the name WLASTA.
Meaning of the baby name WLASTA.

  

WLASTA.  Bohemian name, probably meaning "from the Fatherland," from vlast (fatherland, native country). (A Grammar of the Bohemian or Čech Language, Morfill, 1899).  Also spelled Vlasta.

    For Wlasta, "the imperious," whose praises have been sung by modern poets, it may be claimed, that she was the first "emancipated" woman mentioned in history.  At the death of Libuscha, the maidens of Bohemia contended for the love of the widowed Przemysl, and Wlasta, who had been the favorite attendant of the deceased, boldly demanded his hand and heart.  The "provident" duke wisely rejected her offer, whereupon Wlasta, "the imperious," assembled the daughters of the country under her banner, and commenced the terrible war of the Bohemian maidens... (The Daguerreotype, v.3, 1849).
