bulgarian (Роланд)

This name derives from Old High German name “Hrōdland”, from the Proto-Germanic “Hrōþilandą”, composed of two elements: “*hrōþiz” (praise, fame, glory, renown, honor) plus “*landą” (land, territory). In turn, the name means “famous land, glory to the homeland, famous throughout the land”. Roland (Old High German: Hruodland) (died 778) was a Frankish military leader under Charlemagne who became one of the principal figures in the literary cycle as Matter of France. Roland was a popular legendary figure in medieval Europe. Over the next several centuries, Roland became an iconic figure in medieval minstrel culture.
