Waldemar Meaning
Germanic derivative of the Slavic name Vladimir (or perhaps a cognate composed of the Germanic elements wald "rule" and meri "famous"). It was introduced into Scandinavia by the 12th-century Danish king Waldemar (or Valdemar) who was named after a royal ancestor of his Ukrainian mother. Waldemar is a variant of Valdemar. Valdemar originates in Germanic languages and means "famous ruler". As a masculine given name it is mainly used in Scandinavian languages. Some sources also suggest it could be a derivative of the Slavic name Vladimir.
