Origin of gustav

  • A royal name in Sweden, traditionally explained (even by Gustav I Vasa himself) as Swedish göt + staf "staff (=support) of the Geats (southern Swedes)". But there is no such name in Old Norse, and Gustav is more probably a Swedish rendering of old (north-western) Slavic Gostislav, from Slavic gost' "guest" + slava "glory".
